With less than a week to go until IBM ConnectED, it's a good time to announce what OpenNTF and its board members will be doing at the conference. Because of the smaller conference, OpenNTF have not been able to secure a booth in the sponsor area this year. But OpenNTF and its board members will be very active around the conference.
