Discount for eComm conference on March 12-13

Our friends at eComm Media wrote to tell us about the upcoming conference in California and 15% off code. They call it the "...only telecommunications forum to embrace and promote ...radical change."

In their own words:

"You liked Office 2.0 right? Well, the inaugural Emerging Communications (eComm) conference 2008 taking place in Mountain View brings out visionaries, thought leaders, and looks at how the new wave of communications technology is set to vastly improve productivity & collaboration.

"To encourage you to come and join us for this ground breaking event, we offer a 15% off code. Simply go to, click Register and on the first page of registration enter the code 'office2' for a 15% deduction."

This event takes place at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View. The following week, the MashUp Camp and Unconference returns there - where it started 2 years back - for another free event. That's March 17-20, the same week as EclipseCon. That's 2 good weeks to be in Silicon Valley.
