HI all,
A month or so ago I noticed the Information Overload Research Group
announced their formation.. with an interesting mix of members:

They're having the first conference in NYC in a few weeks and I wondered if
anyone here was planning on attending?

I'm not affiliated at all, but here's info on the conference:

I looked at everything and is it me or is "Basex" a little overly
represented in the conference? Also, the membership looks very
academic (sorry Jeremy). Yes, there are corps, but it looks like the
research/labs sides of huge corps.

The Penn Club is nice though. My previous employer did a lot of our
"off-sites" there b/c it is cheap to Univ of Penn alums and we had
a bunch.

respective companies and researchers working with IxD.. just bummed

What's up with "Basex"? from their website:

"Basex, a trusted advisor to knowledge economy decision makers,* is* the
recognized expert in Collaborative Business Environments, the intersection
of content, knowledge sharing, and collaboration within the enterprise."

Who are these guys? Does anyone use them for their projects?
