Future of Broadband Ecommerce

09/14/99 RMIUG Meeting - Future of Broadband Ecommerce

The Tuesday, September 14th meeting of the Rocky Mountain Internet Users Group (RMIUG) will feature presentation called "The Future of Broadband Electronic Commerce - is Cable Ready for the Next Wave?"

Our presenter is Joel Hassell (jhassell@ecassociates.com), Principal with Electronic Commerce Associates, a strategic technology consulting company based in Boulder. Joel will review the similarities and differences between narrowband and broadband ecommerce. He will also detail why planning and strategy will become an even more critical success factor in this emerging technology and business platform. Joel is the inventor or co-inventor of over a dozen patents covering broadband and back office technologies and is a leading thinker on the integration of the Web and interactive TV.

As always, we will allow plenty of time for interactive Q&A, so bring plenty of questions.

The meeting is Tuesday, Sept. 14th from 7:00 - 9:00 pm (with optional 6:30 pm start for refreshments and informal networking). The meeting will be held at The National Center for Atmospheric Research at 1850 Table Mesa Drive in Boulder, which is located on the west end of Table Mesa Drive, up the hill, right under the Flatirons. For door-to-door driving direction, go to MapQuest (http://www.mapquest.com/ ), click on Driving Directions, enter your starting address, NCAR's address, and voila! Park in the NCAR lot, go in the main door, and ask the guard to point you to meeting, which is held in the main auditorium, right off the lobby. The meeting is free and open to the public, but we may pass the hat to help defray expenses.

Our meeting location seats about 120 people. That is usually enough room to accommodate all attendees, but it's impossible for us to predict how many people will show up for any given meeting. Seating is always on a first-come, first serve basis, and in the event of more attendees than seats, we won't be able to admit additional people into the auditorium after all seats are filled.

RMIUG appreciates the ongoing support from XOR Network Engineering ( http://www.xor.com ) for administration of RMIUG's electronic discussion lists & WWW site. Thanks also to NDA ( http://www.nda.com ) for sponsorship of refreshments for our group.

Consultants and companies are invited to bring Internet-related product information, brochures, and business cards which will be displayed on an information table.
