Colleges,

 

I have been asked by the VP of ITS to reach out to our membership communities and ask if anybody could recommend a dynamic futuristic speaker in regards to computing and technology of the future.

 

Our university provides what we describe as Todd Lecture series (described below) to the Norwich and surrounding communities.

 

The Todd Lecture Series is named in honor of US Army retired Maj. Gen. and Norwich President Emeritus W. Russell Todd, ‘50, and his wife, Carol, in gratitude for their dedicated service to the University. With this series, Norwich reaches out to bring important, significant lecturers to campus. 

 

“The theme for the 12/13 and 13/14 Norwich University Todd Lecture Series is “The Future.”  All schools have been asked to invite speakers who will focus on the future (10-30 years out) of the disciplines offered in those schools.  The School of Business and Management has decided to focus on the future of computing.  We are looking for a speaker who will attempt to focus the audience on the projected advances in computing and how these advances will affect our careers and our personal lives (i.e., what are the coming mega-trends in computing).  The speaker should have a substantial computing background and a track record of speaking and/or publishing on futuristic topics. “

I would nominate David Pogue.

 

Seen him live, and he is truly excellent / world class. And, entertaining, to boot.

Joseph,

Not sure if he is 10 years into the future, but you might consider Mark David Milliron. He has some great thoughts on the future of HIgher Education and has some technology themes within them.

Agreed on David Pogue… great guy and has a good vision.  I've met him a few times when I wrote a book for his Missing Manual series.

Another one that is fantastic is Tim O'Reilly.

Joseph,

 

I agree that David Pogue is excellent.  Another person who is a really good speaker on these issues is Richard Katz, formerly VP at Educause, and now an independent consultant.

 

He can be reached at: www.rnkatzassociates.com

Joseph,

Besides myself of course :) I would certainly suggest Tim O'Reilly, Bill Gross or Vinod Khosla.

I strongly recommend Bryan Alexander of NITLE. He is continually on top of trends in technology and is an avid early adopter. He was an English professor in his former life.

Tremendous speaker as well.

Contact him via NITLE at www.nitle.org.

Bob Paver

As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler; solitude will not be solitude, poverty will not be poverty, nor weakness weakness.

- Henry David Thoreau -

I would second that recommendation.   He works out of Northern Vermont, so he would be convenient too.
