Excitement is building for our upcoming Real-Time Web Summit on June 11 at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York City. This is our first East Coast summit and it has some absolutely amazing attendees. If you haven't registered yet, I don't know what you are waiting for - register today for this high-energy day!

Supporting the conversation are a fantastic set of sponsors who are not only committed to releasing products that are shaping the future of the real-time Web, but also supporting that conversation.

Enterprise Sponsor: IBM Lotus

One of the things we are really excited about is how the real-time Web is impacting life not just for consumers but also within the enterprise. IBM Lotus is partnering with us to support the dialogue about these themes (including, but not limited to IBM's role) at the summit.

IBM Lotus knows how to empower people to connect, collaborate and innovate while optimizing the way they work. Get started now with IBM social computing, mashups, online collaboration and mobile communication technologies that help organizations of all sizes work smarter and become more agile in today's dynamic workplace. Drive better business outcomes through smarter collaboration.

Lunch Sponsor: Alcatel-Lucent

Alcatel-Lucent will be sponsoring the lunch at the Real-Time Web Summit. Similar to our mobile summit in May, Alcatel-Lucet has donated six iPads to be given away to attendees. So while ordering your lunch, make sure to drop your business card in for a chance to win!

Knowmore

Knowmore is an entirely new class of social client. In fact, calling it a client just doesn't do us justice.

Sure we let you bring together all your social networks (an ever growing list) in one place and view them in an amazing interface, but that's just the beginning. We are the first intelligent and rich-media social client. You can finally get out from under the sea of blue links and enjoy a stream of rich media. Get away from the tyranny of the time stream and enter a world of quality. Slice up your stream into a variety of new angles. And lest we forget, search all of your connected social networks for highly personal results. There's a lot of other sweet stuff we know you'll love but we'll let you experience those for yourself.

With knowmore you'll finally attain social nirvana. Note: Reported side effects include sudden and lasting feelings of joy, enlightenment, connectedness and in some cases serenity.

We are currently in private beta. Visit us at knowmore.com to request an invite.
