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 (email@example.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
URL's of interest:
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
), 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
