I Will Be At 2008/Web Service Conference in NYC

I will be on a panel at the 2008 Web Services/SOA on Wall Street show on Monday, February 11th.

The panel starts at 11:00 AM, and goes for about 45-50 minutes. Topics of interest are the increasing use of blogs, Wikis, LinkedIn, Facebook, etc on Wall Street.

Warning: Since I grew up on the tough streets of Jamaica, Queens, be warned that, if you throw tomatoes at me, you do so at your own risk.

Here is a blurb about the panel:

Beyond Web 2.0...What Enterprise 2.0 Is...And What It Means For Wall Street

Beyond Web 2.0, Enterprise 2.0 is about deploying these new technologies and social practices in a corporate business context.

This session will explore the drivers pushing Enterprise 2.0 adoption, survey relevant technologies, and discuss how Wall Street and the financial markets are benefitting.

Hi Marc, I just wrote a query on "what are the roles on wall street" and your blog came up. I work supporting the Trading floor on Wall street. Up until last november I only came to the floor once a week and supported the backoffice full time. Now in the front office full time, I realize that being a tech is not my vision in life. Next week I'll be in Project Mgr training. If there is any advice you can offer as to a viable path to take, or research, I would be most grateful.

When there are job cuts on Wall Street, non-techincal PMs are some of the first people that are "asked" to leave. My advice is to always keep your technical skills ... they will always serve you well.

The best thing to do is to try to align yourself with the business as much as possible.
