Goodbye Etel, Hello Ecomm. Registration is OPEN

I was fortunate to attend the Etel 2007 conference and had the honor of presenting there,  Unfortunately O’Reilly, the conference organizer decided to cancel this years conference.

Etel was not just another conference, but a special community of thinkers and innovators. The community while dismayed with the cancellation, decided not to mourn Etel, but rather  reinvent it. The tireless Lee Dryburgh, has been busy putting together an agenda for the conference, now called Ecomm 2008.

Lee announced today that registration is open at

Almost  all of the leading speakers and presenters scheduled for this years Etel will be at Ecomm. Scheduled for March 12th – March 14th 2008, Ecomm 2008, promises to be one of the most exciting communication events of the year. If you are interested in understanding where we are going, this is the place to be. Since it is a community effort, your help is needed and appreciated. You can read more about Ecomm here on Lee’s blog and  in our Facebook group.

It is hard to believe that one person (with the support of the Ecomm community) was able in such a short time to put together such a high class event. Please visit the event web site and check it out for yourself!

VON Spring is scheduled for the week after Ecomm, which promises a double header!  Lee has told me  that a number of people will be flying in from Europe for both conferences.  So it looks like March will be the declared the month of Emerging Communications. Hope to see you there!
