    Using Virtual Worlds for Remote Collaboration: A Hands-On Demo Jan. 26

    The economics of business travel and distributed teams have made using virtual worlds a competitive advantage.  Still, different industries require different tools and have unique legacies, protocols, and needs when it comes to sharing assets and creating workflow.  In this rare demo we investigate virtual world platform Qwaq in light of these questions, and invite you to join us in an on-the-fly shared set of discussions and exchanges.  We start with a view of the architecture of Qwaq, and end with open discussion on the current uses, potential needs and forward looking questions where virtual worlds meet real work.

    Greg Nuyens, Chief Executive Officer

    Greg Nuyens has more than twenty-five years experience as a high tech entrepreneur, including founding and executive roles at both private enterprises and large public companies. Before Qwaq, as CEO of Devicescape, Greg was responsible for creating and executing the business plan leading to the company’s Wi-Fi embedded strategy culminating in OEM deals with Sharp, Epson, NEC and other leading consumer electronics firms. Devicescape’s venture backers include Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers and August Capital.

    Previously, Greg served as CTO and Vice President of Engineering at Neomar, Inc., a provider of wireless infrastructure software to Fortune 1000 enterprises. He joined Neomar from Inktomi, where he was Chief Technologist. Earlier, Greg has served in several capacities including co-founder of Ilog, Director of Sun Microsystem’s Internet client/server group, and researcher at Xerox PARC and Xerox AI Systems.
