Next week: eComm Amsterdam
Next week in Amsterdam a three day conference, eComm, starts about the future of Telecom, Mobile & Internet Communications. This very broad event also hosts a couple of interesting search related topics, including the Google Wave team.
The Emerging Communications (eComm) Conference & Awards was originally created to promote and accelerate communications innovation. By getting the innovating people together they hoped to stir things up.
Next week in Amsterdam is the European version of the conference which is also held in San Francisco in March. A quick look at the schedule shows some interesting topics:
