Net:Work will take place December 9, 2010 at the Mission Bay Conference Center in San Francisco. The jam-packed, one-day event will gather GigaOM editors and research analysts alongside leading CEOs, CIOs, entrepreneurs, investors, and journalists to debate the technologies impacting enterprise collaboration, HR and recruitment, remote working, operational and office design, training and retention, and other critical aspects of running a business in the networked age.
