Interesting examples of Web 2.0

Over the last few months I have been really looking into the whole Web 2.0 thing, as I kind of felt it was all passing me by! After all, who really wants to know what I’m doing all the time!

Anyway, I must admit I think I am really starting to get it now. I have learnt tons and struck better relationships with a bunch of people.

I thought it might be useful to list some of the sties I have been using:

Well everyone knows about the top social network site!

Cool micro blogging site!

A single place to save or share the stuff you want from all around the web

Gives access to files and remote access to PCs

Dimension Data acquires Teksys


As you probably know, I work for Dimension Data as part of the Microsoft Line of Business in the UK and run the Exchange practice.

This morning Dimension Data has announced that it has acquired a UK Microsoft infrastructure and licensing services company called Teksys.

The acquisition of Teksys, which employs a team of 65 talented and experienced employees, gives our Microsoft business scope to provide new services and to mount an even bigger challenge to become the go to provider of Microsoft consulting services in the Unified Communications and Infrastructure Optimization fields. It also means that Dimension Data becomes a LAR (is able to sell MSFT licenses) in the UK.

All in all, this is an exciting time!

MMMUG Community Event (OCS, SharePoint and Exchange)

Hi All,

As promised, things User Group wise are starting to move again (unlike the trains in the South today!)

This time I am emailing to publicize an event Steve Smith and I have been working to put together in March this year.

As in previous years UK User Groups are coming together to put on a two day event on March 11th and 12th.

The SharePoint User Group and the Microsoft Messaging and Mobility User Group will be hosting a unique event at the Unified Communications Expo 09 at Olympia in London.

The aim of this community event is to show how today’s latest collaboration platforms work closely together from a communication as well as collaboration aspect. The event is split into two unique days with day one being more a solution based day (look what this technology can do) and day two being a technical how we got there day.

See the agenda page for more details of the session breakdowns. Products being demonstrated include Exchange 2007, OCS 2007 R2, SharePoint 2007 and Office 2007 all by recognized experts in the relevant fields.

This event is free so sign up early to avoid disappointment as we do have limited space in our theatre. To register see the link below:

Looking forward to seeing you there!
