MIT Enterprise Forum Annual Event: Brave New Web at Colonnade Hotel. Here's the agenda.
I'll be on this panel in the afternoon:
Geeks to Grandmothers: Extending the Reach of TechnologyI'll be telling everyone about my mom.
Ask the people around you if they know what RSS, AJAX, GPS, and WiFi mean, and you'll likely hear, "Of course!" Do the same at a local grocery store and watch the perplexed looks roll in (No, not the cleaning product!) This session challenges us to look at outreach, usability, and adoption for these technologies, and to find ways to make them understandable, usable, and easy to adopt by the demographics outside geekdom's borders.
