GigaOM, a leading business media company, today announced that the first annual GigaOM Net:Work 2010 conference will take place December 9, 2010 in San Francisco. This inaugural event is the only conference to focus on how broadband and mobile technologies are shaping the future of work fundamentally changing the way companies run their businesses and how employees collaborate. Leading speakers include top executives from Cisco, Polycom, Jive Software, Google, LiveOps, NetSuite, Elance, oDesk, and many more.
Technologies like broadband wireless, mobile email, Skype, web videoconferencing, corporate wikis, virtual private networks, cloud computing, and other web-enabled corporate collaboration tools have transformed the way people work impacting not just how, and where, employees spend their days, but altering the entire culture of work and management, said Matthew Ingram, chair of Net:Work and GigaOM editor. Ten years ago, working from an airport, a coffeeshop, or home was unimaginable, both technically and culturally. Today, the human cloud is a 24×7 global workforce powered and connected by cloud, social, and mobile technologies.

The one-day event will gather GigaOM editors and research analysts alongside leading CEOs, CIOs, entrepreneurs, investors, and journalists to debate the technologies impacting enterprise collaboration, HR and recruitment, remote working, operational and office design, training and retention, and other critical aspects to running a business in the networked age.
