The video is in Mediasite format (requires Microsoft Silverlight plugin), because it integrates the talks with the presentation slides.

The Philadelphia Inquirer ran an article earlier this week about the upcoming Supernova Forum 2010. It focused on how companies that are competitors in the marketplace and public policy debates are willing to share the stage and sponsor list at Supernova. This is something we’ve always been proud of. Supernova is a thought leadership forum. Being affiliated with a university reinforces the fact that even though we tackle major controversies, our goal is to generate insights rather than advocacy.

To take advantage of the opportunity, we’re making the first day of the event, July 29, Supernova Policy Day. We’ll start with a... Read More
There will be a session at the Supernova Forum on “Evolving Digital Infrastructure: Everything is a Platform.” As often happens, I wasn’t entirely sure what I had in mind when I defined the topic. I just had a sense there was a rich vein for conversation. Here are some of my current thoughts about the topic. I welcome your feedback and suggestions to help refine the session.
