Although I haven’t released too many blog posts in recent weeks, there sure is lots of cool stuff going on. One of the matters that I’ve been working on is a talk that I will be joining at a conference called Teens Plugged In: Second Annual Teens in Tech Conference. Here is an overview of the event:
Come join us in this teen-driven event, where we invite teens to share their insights into their “always connected” way of life. Teens are using technology to communicate like no generation before them – mobile text messaging, IM, MySpace pages, video cell phones and online video games, etc. Technology permeates their lives and their interests drive innovation in a significant way.
At the same time, in addition to spending money on technology, teens are emerging as innovators in the industry. These young entrepreneurs are changing our world-using fresh tech-savvy ideas to create new businesses and garnering the attention of investors in the process.
How are teens impacting the way technology is developed? How are these technologies scaling into businesses? And what about the teens themselves- are they creating companies? These are just some of the questions that will be addressed during this exceptional program.
This program is an exceptional opportunity to learn first hand from the teens themselves how they are driving the tech industry and what new ideas they’re working on to move the industry forward.
As of now, the agenda calls for me to be speaking during the “Teen Developer Panel” at 3:00 – 3:30 PM. Rishabh “Shooby” Kumar (@shooby on Twitter) will also be on the panel, along with two teen speakers. (Shooby and I both work at Qik.)
