The word Webinar may be one of the top-10 most hated words on the net (according to a bizarre and probably meaningless poll) but I'm not sure there is a better phrase that isn't either long or ambiguous*.
Anyway - I'm doing one.
I've spoken at a few conferences using the battleships demo, and felt that the game was interesting but not very real-world. This 'online conference' shows something that is very definitely real-world: a call center - but also one where there is some scope for innovation.
The 'broadcast talk' planned for next Wednesday, July 18, at:
- 10:00 am Pacific
- 1:00 pm Eastern
- 6:00 pm UK
- 7:00 pm Central European
It's organized by TIBCO and we'll be broadcasting using Webex, so you'll need to register.
* Wikipedia redirects Webinar to "Web Conference", but it's not a whole conference, just a seminar, and "Web Conference" makes me think of a physical conference on the web like TAE or TRWE rather than a conference that is broadcast using the web. Ho hum.
