I would like to make a special invitation to the Hidden Tech community to participate in the Information and Communication Technology Summit on March 28, 2013 in the UMass Campus Center Ballroom: http://umassit.drupalgardens.com/ We will have a series of technology displays, a poster session, an IT Challenge competition for students, panel discussions about information technology and innovation, and a group of returning UMass alumni that now work at Industrial Light and Magic that will talk about their experiences. There are several ways to get involved: The call for posters is open. We have a few spots left for businesses or groups that would like to run displays in the Campus Center Concourse. We're also looking for sponsorships. As Interim Director this spring, I'm particularly interested in trying to build stronger connections with the local business community and the IT Program on campus. In addition to the Summit, we administer the IT Minor on campus and would love to share information and be a conduit for our tech-savvy students to find internships as students and gainful employment upon graduation. If you're interested in getting involved in the ICT Summit -- or have any questions -- please don't hesitate to contact me. Cheers! -- Steven D.
