I had the opportunity to attend two back to back conferences and now I am heading out to attend the third conference. One of the most interesting aspects of conferences is the keynote session. Conference organizers are lining up big name personalities to open the show and I find these keynotes to be inspiring. At least for the first 1-hour of the conference, everybody is paying close attention to what is happening on the stage before the distractions of food, freebies and cocktail parties kick-in.
If you have not been attending conferences or listening to keynote addresses from rocket scientists, business moguls or movie stars, you can watch this video from Microsoft that visualizes the possible future of technology at home and at work. Remember this video is from 2011 and the visualizations were meant to happen in reality in 5 to 10 years from 2011!
Its a great feeling to escape from the realities of finding the elusive power outlet in an airport for your “dying” smartphone or dealing with traffic jams on the way to an event. BTW, our faithful keyboard seems to be the only thing we will recognize in future.
