I've just wrapped up a focused effort that delayed blogging and many other things. As a result, I finally submitted the detailed description for my plenary slot at eComm Fall 2009 which will be happening in Amsterdam October 28th-30th. My abstract is not up on the website yet, but hopefully the next few weeks will bring details on my talk and many others. For now, let me just say my title is
in which I propose what I hope is a novel approach to dramatically expanding the capabilities and commercial success of license-exempt consumer devices.
This will be the first time eComm has been held in Europe but, based on the first two eComm conferences (2008 and Spring 2009), this is the meeting for the future of communications. It's not a trade show and it's not a mass event. Instead, it's three days of rapid paced information ― high level, insightful and non-commercial. Even more important, the people are very, very interesting. It's not cheap, but it costs less if you sign up now (especially if you sign up before July 21st). What's more, because I'm such an enthusiast, and I'm on the conference's advisory board, I've been given a discount code. For an additional 20% off type in "BroughTurner" as the eComm discount code, i.e. where the registration form says "Click here to enter a promotional code."
I hope to see you in Amsterdam in October.
The mammoth telecom industry ― fixed and cellular ― is in the process of being re-written. You can stand on the side and be written into history or join with the growing community that's writing the future. Opportunities have never been so great ― to influence how humanity connects, communicates and collaborates and to profit from radical restructuring.
