Jon Udell Jon Udell
In this lecture on "Why Johnny Can't Syndicate," speaker Jon Udell will review a case study conducted in Ann Arbor and elsewhere that uses the syndication of public calendars to explore what people do and don't understand about the Web's core principles, how we can enlarge that understanding, and why it matters that we do.

Udell is an author, information architect, software developer, and new media innovator. In 2007 Udell joined Microsoft Research as a writer, interviewer, speaker, and experimental software developer. Currently he is building and explaining a calendar network that's based on open standards and runs in the Windows Azure cloud.
