Wes 2008 Keynote: Jim Balsillie, the Wireless Leadership Awards, Bob Picciano and Ray Kurzweil (Live Blog!)


Jim Balsillie and Douglas SoltysTo make up for yesterday, I’m at the keynote early, and in great position right up front. Compared to yesterday, the general session room is nearly empty, but that’s not going to deter me from live blogging my face off. Keep refreshing this page for the latest updates!

1:58pm Now it’s starting to fill up. I guess everyone was trying to squeeze in one more hallway meeting before we get started. At WES, you basically have to do everything on the move, or you will never get anywhere or do anything.

2:02pm BBCool Simon has just arrived, a very tall head in the crowd. Same format as yesterday: I’m on the blog, Simon on the Twitter and the Flckr.

More Live Blog Madness!

WES 2008 registration opening in January


WESIt seems like just yesterday that WES 2007 went down, but my, how time flies. May 13-15th. are the confirmed dates for the Wireless Enterprise Symposium in Orlando Florida, the biggest BlackBerry event out there, and sign-up is due to open up this January. The two slated keynotes are James Kilts, former CEO of Gilette, and futurist Ray Kurzweil, with more speakers on the way. A new addition this year is BES admin certification testing, if you’re looking to break into the field. They’ve got tracks for IT admins, devs, execs, and archietects, so no matter what your role is with BlackBerrys, you’ve got something to check out at WES.
