Free Pass & Discounts to Enterprise 2.0 Conference in Boston

Enterprise 2.0 ConferenceThe Enterprise 2.0 conference is coming June 9-12, 2008 at the Westin Waterfront hotel in Boston. The conference organizers and advisory board have tweaked the format of the Enterprise 2.0 conference for 2008 and it should be a great event.

One of the more anticipated events in 2008 is the Enterprise 2.0 Launch Pad organized by Stowe Boyd. The Enterprise 2.0 Launch Pad is now down to 8 semi-finalists and the public (you) can review 2 minute demonstrations of each semi-finalists Enterprise 2.0 solution and vote online to help whittle the field down to 4 finalists. One of the 4 finalists will be chosen by Enterprise 2.0 conference attendees as the 2008 Launch Pad winner.

I will be blogging and twittering this year from Enterprise 2.0 and hope to meet most of the Demo Pavilion and Launch Pad companies and check out their Enterprise 2.0 products in more detail. Follow me during the conference on the blog or via twitter @ondemandbeat.

The conference organizers have generously offered 1 free conference pass (this is really cool..about a $2,200 value) that I will give away to one of the OnDemand Beat’s readers.

The first person who can publicly answer via twitter to @ondemandbeat or via a comment to this post with the answer to the following 2 questions gets the free pass. (The 2nd question is tough..did not think I would make it that easy did you:)

  1. Andrew McAfee, is an Associate Professor at what University?
  2. What were the final scores of EACH game of the 3 GAME SWEEP of the Chicago White Sox over the Boston Red Sox in the 2005 American League Division Series?

If you don’t win the free pass…don’t despair. All OnDemand Beat readers can save $100 off registration or get a Free Expo Pass to Enterprise 2.0 by using the code CMBMEB14 during registration.

    Gordon,

    You got it right! This contest did not last long at all did it 🙂

    I will send you an email a bit later today with the Free Conference Pass information.

    See you in Boston next month!

    Lucy,

    Thanks for replying…and yes the White Sox (or Chi Sox) did make the playoffs in 2005…they actually won the World Series after sweeping Houston that year.



  8. Ameed Taylor on May 21, 2008 at 7:44 am

    Werner,

    You were close but missed the last score.

    Yes I am a Chicago sports fan…When I grew up in Chicago none of the teams were good. Once I left for college the Bears and Bulls started winning championships and then the White Sox in 2005.

    Cant really root for the Cubs though 🙂



  9. Ameed Taylor on May 21, 2008 at 7:45 am

    Mitre,

    You got all the questions right but Gordon beat you to the draw by a couple of hours



  10. Ameed Taylor on May 21, 2008 at 7:47 am

    Gordon beat you to the answer by an hour…but good try



  11. Mitre Landon on May 21, 2008 at 8:10 am

    🙁



  12. Gordon Taylor on May 21, 2008 at 10:55 am

    Yay!

    I look forward to catching up with you in Boston!

    (For a brief moment I thought you might have changed the scores on wikipedia. That would have been really mean, but maybe a bit funny 🙂
