Wed eve (5/28): Emerging Tech SIG in SF: we have Clark Dodsworth presenting "Real Context Awareness: Secure Swarm Sensing, Ad Hoc Biomimicry, and Owning Your Personal Cloud". How will they change things? How will that change us? www.svforum.org/ETsig
The Emerging Technology SIG examines specific new technologies and applications, as well as technology trends and opportunities across markets and industries. We don't mind if a technology has one foot in the lab; we do avoid those that are "established" in any sense of the word.

Why is agile so hard? It works better than most other approaches, but that doesn't make it easy. How do we move through agile’s challenges to achieve its promise? - the point of my talk and our panel at the upcoming San Jose AgileCamp this Saturday, May 3. http://agilecamp.org
