MIT Emerging Technology Conference Day 1Today I'm in Cambridge at the 2007 MIT Emerging Technology Conference on the MIT campus. The subject matter today will be a focus on women in technology. The President of MIT Susan Hockfield will spend 15 minutes or so giving some opening comments and then Robert Birgeneau (Chancellor at UC Berkeley) will spend 45 minutes on the keynote. I must admit a personal bias in today's sessions... I have two daughters of my own and I want to know what I can do to make it easier for them to be professionals in technology but I'm not sure I'll really learn anything that I don't already know in that regard. Who knows, we'll see how it goes. I'll keep you posted.
FYI, this conference was on the list of conferences I want to attend that I posted in March of 2005... I wonder if that's how Kathryn Ghita of KMC PR found me.
