You read the headline right. I'm looking forward to Spring VON 2008 in San Jose even though 2007 Fall VON in Boston hasn't happened yet.
After catching up with Jeff Pulver over the weekend and hearing his vision and direction for the granddaddy of VoIP conferences it was rewarding to hear the energy and enthusiasm back in his voice. Like most of us Jeff has been looking at the future of where voice, video and social communications (some call it networks or media) all converge.
Jeff is seeing that very clearly and while this upcoming VON will set the stage with the very hot Innovators Unconference Track that Carl Ford has been busily assembling.
All this is setting the stage for the 2008 show, which makes this years Fall VON very exciting. The nexus of communications is rapidly coming together between the various modes, and from Jeff's perspective the jump starts in late October and runs all the way to Spring in San Jose.
