Hi,

following a short report from my business presentation in Vienna for the
Austrian Computer Society.

Start was at 17:00h CET in the Technical University, electronic
engineering department of Vienna, Austria.
About 80 people, some suite carriers, some students, some beard wearing
freaks showed up to listen to a presentation about Asterisk, one about
SIP and one (mine) about Jabber, the Foundation and technical benefits
and scenarios for open source enterprise scale instant messaging with
Jabber/XMPP.

The audience was excellent, highly motivated, enthusiastically asking.
Questions were about security and encryption of traffic (end to end),
about SSL between servers and about the trademark process - may someone
use jabber in it's product and my he advertise his product with jabber,
especially in commercial products.

A discussion about GPG in jabber took place, too.

After about an hour my presentation and the discussions were done.

The presentation slides are available at
http://www.activestocks.de/ocg.html and at
http://www.ocg.at/ueber-uns/arbeitskreise/oss/aktionstage05.html

Images and photos are about to come.

Propably by fall this year the next meeting from the OCG will take place
and if everything goes well jabber may have a booth at a special two day
event of the OCG. The TU Vienna will deploy a jabber server.

Regards,
keep up,
stick together,
Ulrich
