Can you imagine your next business conference being held online and online only? It won’t happen for the next big one, like the Management of Change later this month. But the technology is almost there to make it happen, minus the virtual-reality goggles to immerse you on the exhibition floor. IBM and the Security and Defense Agenda just wrapped up a five-day session, Security Jam, that brought together about 4,000 people to discuss global security. They called it a jamming session, and it was really a big crowdsourcing event. The term has its roots in jazz music. Joining us with details is Liam Cleaver, the global program director in IBM’s Jam Program Office.
