  • Hoping for the same forward thinking this morning that we saw in yesterday's keynote. #tcon11 #ualberta #yegit #
  • Keynote by Michael Argast from Telus. He is new, I hope Telus hasn't eaten his soul yet. :) #tcon11 #ualberta #
  • Today's talk is highlighting why I felt the RIM talk yesterday felt dated. BB features aren't competitive any more. #tcon11 #ualberta #
  • Mobile antivirus may be a backward step but it is inevitable. There will always be a need as hacks will always exist. #tcon11 #
  • Hmm looks like the #tcon11 tag doesn't like me today. My tweets don't seem to be showing up. #ualberta #ualbertait #yegit #
  • Wonder how many faculty break IT policy? #tcon11 #
  • Social media crime hunt is the new age of Darwin! Let the criminals get themselves caught! #tcon11 #ualberta #yegit #
  • Great opening talk! I hope the next talks are just as excellent. :) #tcon11 #
  • At @chrisj_moore talk about city of Edmonton IT. Interesting parallels to #ualberta IT planning needs. #tcon11 #
  • Design fail L2-190 unless you are 5 feet tall you are in the way of the projections in this room at the podium. #tcon11 #
  • Indexed and artificially intelligent open data center jointly developed between U of A and City of Edmonton. #suggestion #tcon11 #
  • At VPIT talk #tcon11 we do need a complete cultural change at #ualberta so that people accept new technology quickly and easily. #
  • Rate of technological change is so great that popular tech will change completely between 1st and 4th year in urgad study #tcon11 #ualberta #
  • Campus IT needs to collaborate with cell carriers so campus cell coverage is pervasive! All mobile tech needs to work! #tcon11 #ualberta #
  • VPIT: United we grow, divided we status quo. Nice. :) #tcon11 #ualberta #ualbertait #
  • Absolutely! Can you get others to think too? RT @mcguiganj How to do more with less? It's easy.. think! #tcon11 #
  • Bad form Technocon, scheduling a tour during lunch, then when people return no food is left. Very bad! #tcon11 #ualberta #fail #
  • #tcon11 closing keynote. Fundamental difference. The government would be "collecting" your information. You "volunteer" it to Facebook. #

  • Good breakfast at Technocon but dissappointed in swag bag inconsistency. #tcon11 #yegit #
  • Robin Winsor good opening keynote at #tcon11 a bit of a taste of TED talks of the past. #
  • Technocon talk by Robin Winsor gets better and better I wonder what he thinks of a massive joint open data initiative with #ualberta #tcon11 #
  • Robin Winsor talk about big data at #tcon11 has he been thinking about entirely virtualizing the cloud software and infrastructure #ualberta #
  • Ok sitting in "This too shall pass – and other change myths" at #tcon11 excited to hear what is said. Things never change right?! #sarcasm #
  • I decided to buck the trend and sit at the front in "this too shall pass" #tcon11 They are putting out paper and pens #interactive #ualberta #
  • "This too shall pass" This is going to be interesting. #changemgmt #tcon11 #ualberta very experienced speakers! #
  • "This too shall pass" so most places are about linear thinking just to get an answer. Breaking the rules might make things better! #tcon11 #
  • "This too shall pass" Ideas get dropped when communication breaks down and patterns are all that exist! #tcon11 #ualberta #
  • Ok just learned in "this too shall pass" that not everyone has a problem with change. Maybe it is just #ualberta fears change! #tcon11 Ooooh #
  • User management as a service UMaaS at #tcon11 this should be interesting Another example of IT becoming transparent! #ualberta #
  • Yes absolutely!! RT @jordanshodges When policy fails…. Try thinking. :-) #tcon11 #funny #
  • Groups can't afford to stay in the data center business. Progression to the cloud just makes sense. #tcon11 #ualberta #
  • Wow UMaaS with full workflow management really does implement on demand computing! #tcon11 #ualberta #
  • Whoa! Completely control end point computing access from within your HR application?! Amazing! #integrationwin #tcon11 #ualberta #
  • Definition of irony RIM guy talking about balancing needs of clients with RIMs current performance in the consumer market. #tcon11 #ualberta #
  • Dragons and laser beams to protect infrastructure?! I need to upgrade!!! #tcon11 #ualberta #
  • Nick Dawson RIM "mobility and smartphones are the present" will he talk Augmented Reality? #AR #tcon11 #ualberta #
  • Booyaa called it! I see Augmented Reality on his slide! #AR #tcon11 #ualberta #
  • Bandwidth providers better realize, yes you can charge for use but be realistic or you will fail in the face of competition. #tcon11 #wind #
  • "don't give away the keys to the kingdom????!!!!" wait what did RIM do in certain other countries recently when pushed? COME ON! #tcon11 #
  • Kudos for Nick Dawson handling the country privacy question. But what did RIM really say to them? I lack trust. #tcon11 #ualberta #
  • Good time at #tcon11 today. I hope tomorrow is as enlightening as today was. #ualberta #ualbertait #yegit #
