So the first Mashup Manchester happened on 18th October 2007.
We had a good turn out, 30-40 people in the building to hear some fantastic speakers and quality material being delivered, around what does Web 2.0 really mean ?
Simon Grice talked about the convergence of media, something I truly believe has to happen soon, the necessity to be able to access Tv, films, music, when and where we want to, not be bound by location or time, and how the times are moving quickly to enable this to happen.
David Terrar, spoke around what web 2.0 means in the Enterprise, how Pfeizer are using it as a new medium, and how the BBC have embraced it whole heartedly, and interesting enough the activies SAP have around their development partner programme, some insightful discussions.
Lee Strafford, gave a lively talk on Plus.net, the ups and downs, and now Project Sahara, one of the exciting projects to be kicked off this year, watch this space, for a seperate piece if you havent heard of Sahara.
Manoj Ranaweera, was the host and brought all of this together as usual, and talked a little on edocr, his new business, and also check out his blog for more on the space, and E Invoicing, Manoj is a specialist in this area.
Netvibes and Meecard
Also presented on the evening, around their offerings.
All in all a really good night, networking went on till past 11, o clock, most of the food and beer consumed, and it seems overall a very well received event, and thus we are doing another, on December 6th.....For some highlights see below.http://www.etribes.com/slideshow/111860
