PARC and ASC to host a special Web2.0 speaker series

Starting next week on Nov 15th, PARC and ASC is hosting a special Web2.0 speaker series as part of our normal PARC Forum talks. We have a very exciting and evolving list of speakers. This series will run for several months throughout the winter season, right here at PARC.

The first week we will have Ross Mayfield from SocialText speaking to us about Wikis in the Enterprise. Following that, we have speakers from various places ranging from startups, industrial research labs, and academia. Topics will range from social practices of online communities, startup excitements, mashup techniques, and academic studies. The talks will be recorded and published on the web. Here is the preliminary announcement:
