Two more interesting themes at the Educause Conference this fall are mobility and BYOD.  There was much discussion about these themes in our summer Top 10 Issues.  Merit Network, here in Michigan, recently sponsored a BYOD day, and we found that the audience blended these two themes into one discussion realm.  Some conference items you may find interesting, from a variety of perspectives, follow, but this is just a partial list - note that mobility is one of the searchable themes.

There is an Unconference on BYOD within the conference on Thursday at 1:30 PM.  Discussion topics are being crowd-sourced now on Twitter using hashtag #E12_SESS169.
