GGD Tech Discussion: 2010 Review, 2011 Predictions

5 Nov

Do you have any predictions for 2011 in tech? Do you think Green IT will become more prevalent? Was 2010 the year of the video or location based software?

Have your say and hear from women around the globe.

We will be meeting for dinner and then connecting to women around the world via webcam for an indepth discussion about what technology has made the biggest impression on women in a wide array of fields.

If you’d like to share your review and/or predictions, but can’t attend our event – please upload a video on YouTube, Facebook or Vimeo and use the title ‘GGD Tech Discussion: 2010 Review 2011 Predictions

We look forward to hearing what you have to say!

Di Gallo, Venessa Paech and Lisa Lang will be our discussion leaders driving the conversation to each aspect of technology; including: the usage and knowledge of tools, techniques, crafts, systems or methods of organization.

Join us at Honey Bar in South Melbourne on Wednesday, November 24 · 6:30pm – 11:30pm

    The following was left on Cindy’s Take on Tech regarding a different topic, but we wanted to share it here too.
    Betsey Merkel said:
    Open Source Economic Development, technology is the keystone to local, national, and global economic innovation and prosperity. Transformational solutions will evolve not from any one of us but from what we do together. It’s pretty essential men and women work side-by-side from respected positions of strength based on what each can offer so we can create those quantum solutions. With 15 million people out of work in the U.S. alone, it’s imperative we remain focused on answering some very serious questions: How are we going to use web tools to innovate in education, economic, and workforce development – quickly and wisely? and, How will these new tools aid us in responding to the unexpected exponential consequences of social, economic, and environmental issues? Nurturing cultures of transparency, value, creativity and collaboration is paramount and we haven’t a moment to waste. Thanks for starting and sharing an important conversation to us all.
