Net:Work 2010: Live Coverage

Simon Mackie, Mathew Ingram, and Om Malik at Net:Work 2010

Our concept of work is rapidly changing. Mobile technology, improved broadband, and cloud-based enterprise services mean that teams are no longer limited to location — they are dispersed around the country and sometimes even the world. Companies now can find the best talent, wherever it is. We call this concept “the human cloud.” Just as cloud computing disrupted the idea of computing and corporate IT infrastructure, the human cloud is disrupting centuries-held notions of work.

Today, at our first-ever Net:Work event at Mission Bay Conference Center in San Francisco, we’ll examine how the human cloud is disrupting work and talk to the people developing the technology, addressing the new management practices needed, and making online collaboration work in their own companies. Our livestream of the event begins at 8:15 a.m. PT, and we will be live-blogging the onstage sessions throughout the day. The Twitter hashtag is #networkconf if you want to join the conversation.
