This week I’m in Vegas at the IBM Pulse 2010 Conference. It’s IBM’s biggest service management conference for showcasing new technologies and providing training to IT professionals. It has a huge Expo area where many IBM Business Partners have booths explaining the solutions and services they develop in conjunction with IBM software and hardware. And much of the conference involves customer speakers describing how they use IBM solutions to improve their business–real-world stuff–the good, bad, and the ugly. These are great learning sessions because we all learn new ideas and IBM gets great feedback for innovation and ways to improve.
My role at the conference is to lead a team of IBMers involved in digital social networking to help facilitate the online presence or “online party” happening on Twitter, LinkedIn, blogs, and such. Also, we are doing video and podcast interviews with IBMers, customers, Business Partners, and analysts to capture some of the big news and lessons learned at the conference.
When I'm not blogging here, I'll be blogging on the IBM Pulse blog:

Various folks are hosting tweet-ups at the conference--meetings where Twitter users gather physically at a networking event. We will have general Pulse tweet-ups and ones for specific interest areas such as Storage and Asset Management. These are announced on Twitter and blogs. Keep an eye out for them if you're at the conference.
I created a Pulse2010 playlist on YouTube where we'll be uploading man-on-the-street videos of live interviews at the conference:
