If you are in London on December 6th then I warmly recommend the MRS one day Research 2.0 conference. The agenda looks really strong, and the day finishes off with a Pecha Kucha session, where the speakers include (amongst others) Andy Dexter, Fiona Blade and myself.
The conference is being chaired by on old colleague of mine (i.e. he was a colleague of mine at TRB, a long time ago, he is not necessarily old). It transpires that Martin may be the first to have used the term Research 2.0 in a public forum, when he and Russel Goldsmith presented a paper titled Research 2.0 at May 2006 Consumer Insight Forum. Unless anybody out there can point to a prior public use.
I was unaware of Martin's usage and I started using the term in this blog in August 2006, which is probably one of the earliest dates, along with Laurent Flores who also started promoting the term in August 2006.
So, if anybody knows a prior public use, let me know, and I'll blog about it!
