ThinkBalm analyst Erica Driver to moderate LIFE SCIENCES 2010: The Global Collaboration Imperative

We promised to keep you in the loop about the panelists and special guests who'll be featured at our LIFE SCIENCES 2010: The Global Collaboration Imperative event with Microsoft on Jan. 19. Here's our first big surprise. Our panel moderator will be Erica Driver, Principal of ThinkBalm. Recently rated one of the top 100 analysts by Technobabble, Erica is one of America's most sought-after speakers on the immersive Internet.

Erica has been in the IT sector for 15 years. She's a former principal analyst from Forrester Research, where she launched the company’s Web3D coverage as part of her enterprise collaboration research. Before joining Forrester, she was a Director at Giga Information Group (now part of Forrester) and an analyst at Hurwitz Group (now Hurwitz and Associates). She began her career in IT as a system administrator and Lotus Notes developer.

And you might recall I interviewed her during this past year's 3D TLC conference, where we both presented to attendees.

In addition to moderating the event, Erica will present ThinkBalm research that documents immersive Internet trends for 2010, with an emphasis on what's important to the life sciences sector.

She'll cover the core business questions attendees should ask themselves, implications for the technology selection process, and the significance of technology vendor partnerships when evaluating next-generation collaboration platforms.

We'll be announcing panelists soon, so watch this space. There's still time to get a ticket if you haven't already done so. And you can invite friends and anyone else you think would be interested by sending them this invite. Seats are filling up quickly, so please reserve your spot ASAP! Look forward to seeing everyone!
