Opportunities for growths in the wake of disruption

is this year's NFAIS 2007 Annual Conference theme. No doubt that Google and Microsoft have changed the way that our users are accessing to our content. But one thing that I have been hearing from end users is that there is a love and hate relationship with Google when they look for information in Google, hence more opportunities for content producers....
In the past few years we had Google members in this conference courting publishers to include their content in their index and showing the benefit of being indexed by Google. Personally I am all for the publishers to include their content where their users start their search. It would be interesting to see if any representative from Google or Microsoft will attend this year's meeting. If you are looking how to register, here is their online registration .

I am looking forward to meet and hear the final key note speaker Tony Hey who is the Corporate VP for Technical Computing with Microsoft.
