Collaboration Tools Extravaganza (Collaboranza)

Time 04/26/06 08:45AM-10:00AM

Session Abstract

Remote collaboration tool-sets offering everything from presence and data-sharing to voice and video packaged in reliable and easy-to-use interfaces have been competing for attention over recent years. This sterling assembly of candidates represents many of the best of these tools, some still experimental, some in advanced production versions. Feature sets and underlying architectures vary a great deal. Can we hope for interoperability across such differences? Will islands of adoption persist forever?
Or will the competition between intelligent designs ultimately come down to Darwinian survival of the fittest? Come get a synopsis of a six-fingered handful of key players in the desktop collaboration space and get ready for early May's week-long Collaboranza!
