Hi everyone,

Greetings from the site of Social Connections VII.

The weather is about the same now as it was back in November, cold, gray and rainy. As a light in the dark, we are sure up and running towards the ninth installment of the lovely circus that is Social Connections.

Just in the last few weeks, we have issued both a call for abstract and a call for sponsors.

The abstracts have started to come in, and we already have our first sponsor lined up. Now we wanna disturb your hopefully lovely summer holiday by asking you to do the same.

Send in your abstract! We would love to hear from all of you, be it thoughts around social business, IBM Connections in particular, the cloudy parts of the IT world or anything else that comes to mind?

If you have ideas, just send them in, we’d love to hear from all of you. Beeing a first time speaker in Boston, it’s a big rush to get up there if you haven’t before. Take a chance and enjoy yourself, it’s an awesome experience.

Also, in that sense, if you are a first time speaker, and feeling a bit shy on getting up in front of people.. There isn’t a crowd in the world to be better to do it in front of, trust me.

Sponsors? As usual, we can’t do this without you. You are the backbone of this whole thing, otherwise it would just be a gang of people sitting in various parts of the world, talking about doing something. You guys have always been awesome, and those of you who decides to back us this time around as well, we’ll love you just a little bit extra much! So head over to the sponsors page and sign up!

We promise to share more details on keynotes and such in a short while, working hard on it to offer you guys something really great this time again. Stay tuned for that!

And for those of you beeing on a holiday with me just popping in, have a great vacation, and remember to check back as soon as you’re finished tanning on the beach!
