  • My biggest fear for today is a technology breakdown. (get it?) Me and Bill are not standing up here pretending to be technology professionals, we are just leading a discussion, where we hope to get some wheels turning, and thinking about some of the new tools becoming available to us. We are going to throw a lot of information at you today. Some of these applications are being mandated by the company and some are still just ideas. Unfortunately we will not be handing out iPads as you leave today, but there are some pretzels and water in the back.
