The EDUCAUSE Annual Conference (Wed., Nov. 7-Friday, Nov. 9) is the premier gathering for higher education IT professionals. It provides content and exploration of today’s toughest technology issues facing campuses around the world, and convenes some of the brightest minds in the community.
This year’s conference is taking place in Denver, and for those of us who can’t be there, the Office of the VP/CIO is partnering with the Robertson Media Center and the Digital Media Lab (DML) to bring more than 60 presentations to us via live stream. Drop by the Robertson Media Center (3rd floor, Clemons Library) next Wednesday through Friday and view the sessions in the VizLounge on the high density display wall.

Personal Pick from Wednesday’s Schedule
10am – 11:30am, Clay Shirkey, IT as a Core Academic Competence.
I’m looking forward to Clay Shirkey’s address. He wrote Here Comes Everybody, The Power of Organizing without Organizations, a great book on how social media is changing cultural and organizational fabric. I imagine that it’s still an interesting and topical read.
