Senator John Edwards is speaking to the group here at Gnomedex today. The great news is he didn’t take credit for the Internet (see Al Gore). Its interesting that when the Senator agreed to speak the national press demanded access to the event. I commend Chris Pirillo for holding the line and keeping this conversation with the Senator just for the group.

The Senator is in favor of Net Neutrality for those of you who have not heard of this topic prior to this post I urge you to look into it. The large telcom companies are pushing for restrictions on Internet bandwidth so they can charge more to some companies to carry content and less to others.

Edwards is doing a great job with this very vocal group. I’d urge you take a look at the feed that’s available online if you would like to see this very engaging and frank discussion.

Its RSS Day here in Seattle Washington so says the governor. While we all know most states extend this tribute to everything from lawn and tractor day to hot dog day I think the interesting thing is that RSS was on the radar at all. RSS is quickly coming of age and is now part of effective communication and information delivery. If you have not tried RSS yet download a reader and embrace RSS day.

I am at Gnomedex 6 in Seattle today. Its a fantastic technology show hosted by Chris Pirillo. Gnomedex has become an annual summit for the leaders in the Web 2.0 culture. I'm looking forward to hearing about the newest trends in the space and meeting the many thought leaders who attend the event.

An example of how this conference differs from what you generally attend picture 300 geeks in a room EVERYONE has a laptop out and is either blogging or vlogging live from te keynote. The clicking sounds coming from this room is crazy.

Now that's an interesting statement. When we pick up a phone we have an expectation that we can connect to what/who we need. Peter Griffiths Senior Vice President of Cognos believes that BI should be much the same. It should be supported by a single tool/solution, be extremely easy to use and enable collaboration and exchange of information. I have to admit I agree. Cognos is working hard to be the dial tone of business performance and business intelligence. According to Peter over 5 years ago Cognos recognized the need to move toward this level of business service, ReportNet was the cornerstone Cognos 8 now offers a single platform along with a single tool for enterprise wide "pervasive business intelligence".

Our next step is wrap BI around a person....Peter Griffiths, Cognos

Cognos intends to continue their focus in the Global 3500. I asked Peter about the impact of open source and other solutions entering the performance market space and if they will have an effect on Cognos. While these solutions might fit the needs of smaller companies it won't have an effect on who Cognos is serving. Cognos will continue it's dedication to the enterprise and to scalability, along with delivering self service BI to that reaches across the enterprise offering power and simplicity.
