TWIA Episode 28: Echelon 2010 & Social Wok

The first of the special episodes, as TWIA is a supporting media partner for Echelon 2010, we bring together two special guests, Mohan Belani the lead organizer and his team from E27 Singapore who brings together the top web-tech startups within Asia to Singapore, and Guang Ming Yong, CEO of Social Wok to talk about the upcoming conference, the story of Social Wok and their experience from Unconference 2009 to TechCrunch 50. They also discuss their own thoughts on the topic of cloud computing. Update: Ming Yong, who is originally intended to be the moderator for the panel, “Changing Enterprise 2.0: Implications of Cloud Computing, Social and Web Services”, will not be able to attend.

About Social Wok: Socialwok was founded on the premise that if social networks like Facebook and Twitter were so effective in helping us communicate with our friends, then why should we continue to depend on the ineffciencies of CC or BCC emails to collaborate at work with colleagues. Socialwok was created to allow organizations to harness the ease and power of rich media and feeds to improve collaboration and communication. (Right: Ming Yong Guang, CEO, Social Wok)
