Questions & Course of Track

The Advanced Track will run mostly as a facilitated discussion. User created content is what Web2.0 is about so we've built this with an eye to reflecting that. Since we're at it we might as well begin the discussion now. No, please don't' start answering the questions below. They're simply to help prepare for tomorrow. Do comment here to suggest tools and resources we may want to tap tomorrow afternoon. This site will be up during our track and it will make it easier for us to demo pieces for the conversation.

Tech Summit Welcome

This blog supports the 2009 Tech Summit's Advanced Track. Please use it to engage each other, the conversation, the tools. Technology and innovation are this year's strong conference themes and this is the time and space to combine them for each of our offices and for our professions.

Working off Frans Johansson's keynote, this summit strives to draw together our knowledge and experiences to drive the understanding that leads to mastery that leads to creative intersections. We have reached a point where we innovate and maintain control over our direction or we let others determine our future.
