AlwaysOn Stanford Summit, Day 1

by David Spark on July 27, 2006

So I attended the AlwaysOn Summit at Stanford University yesterday. It’s a powerhouse innovation conference presenting CEOs of some major tech companies. Some highlights.

The CEO of the immensely popular user generated video site, YouTube, was a huge hit. The once CEO of was not as he desperately tried to equate his failed business with YouTube.

Are you willing to dump your desktop software for Web services? Many see it as inevitable. For example, we already use Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, and Hotmail for our personal email. Why not a web-based solution for business mail? Dump Outlook and Lotus Notes. Both Yahoo and Google are now offering hosted mail for businesses that allows you to use your own domain name.

Technorati, the blog search engine, has unveiled a new look which better lets you track specific topics in the blogosphere.

Today is the last day of the conference. Don’t worry if you can’t make it to Palo Alto. You can watch it live online for free.
