P2P Conference keynoter
If you weren't able to attend the P2P Conference in San Francisco, we've
scheduled a second P2P Conference, November
5-8, 2001, at the Westin Grand in Washington, DC.
The overwhelming success of the first conference was undeniable to all
involved, with over 1000 attendees, speakers, and press. The St. Francis
Hotel in San Francisco was literally buzzing for three straight days with
virtually every P2P luminary in attendance, from Shawn Fanning of Napster,
Bill Joy of Sun Microsystems, Gene Kan from Gnutella, Ian Clarke of FreeNet,
and Ray Ozzie of Groove Networks to name just a few.
And now, O'Reilly & Associates is casting the net wider by integrating
web services and peer-to-peer into one definitive conference. Participate in
the dialog that shapes the standards, legislation and practices that will
transform global computer interaction. Come discuss the potential of the
Internet, when the best of the peer-to-peer methodologies connect with the
power of web services, in a future where smart clients and open servers meet
to revolutionize the Post-Web world.
