A Preview of a Preview

Today, I had the opportunity to see a preview of Tom Skill's opening keynote presentation.  It was the Rickey Henderson of presentations.  It was the perfect lead-off to a great day.  The presentation touches on and can be referenced by every presentation for the remainder of the day.  Tom Skill and his colleagues at UD used 80 sources to research what the technology landscape will be in 2013.  Attendees will learn their findings and also walk away with something else.
