I am sharing this event far and wide, as it's a rare opportunity to meet a great person. You may recall two years ago when the STA Father's Club brought Louie Zamperini into town to inspire our boys. We had over 1200 people at that event. We are getting a similar surge of ticket sales for this years event! We hope that you will consider joining us. (...and sign up fast as seats are limited.)

PS - If you want to bring some impressionable youth, we encourage you to purchase a 'Mentor Ticket' which allows you to bring 3 men-tees FREE of charge. 

FEEL FREE TO PASS THIS ON WITH YOUR NETWORKS, as it's open to the public. Thanks!

Helpful advice for startups.
Every startup I see invariably puts up a competitive analysis slide that plots performance on a X/Y graph with their company in the top right. The slide is a holdover from when existing companies l...

Great man. I hope he sends a replacement. We really need one at the moment.

I am beginning to wish my cell phone was LESS capable. I admit, I can't resist the urge to consumer information and get things done...constantly. Once I have it out in my hand, it's all over. (Case in point, my alarm just went off and here I am!)

The idea of a more capable wearable that is less convenient for consuming and creating content, but still good for quick task checks/reminders and phone calls appeals to me.

I want less distraction without abandoning the advantages.
Today, the smartphone is the center of our digital lives. Does it have to be?

Most organizations now have SharePoint in one form or another within their organization, but 63% are somewhat stalled in their adoption and progress. Top biggest ongoing issues are persuading staff to use it, poor governance, and lack of internal expertise. It can’t just be left to IT, it requires the business managers and information workers to get involved to maximize the value.

Join your peers from organizations like Target, 3M, Medtronic and US Bank at this free 90 min meetup to learn how to avoid common mistakes and how to ensure success with SharePoint. Connect with local SharePoint experts and customers, and get the latest AIIM (Association for Information and Image Management) research from 400+ SharePoint deployments. Bring your tough questions and ask your colleagues and SharePoint experts for their advice and assistance. 

Don't miss this opportunity to meet local SharePoint experts and customers. 
Identify the best way to get user adoption, governance, and business value
Discuss how to best re-energize a stalled implementation 
Plan the role of SharePoint vs. 3rd party extensions and applications
Describe best practices for upgrading and migrating to latest version
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Tom Motzel. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

I encourage IT leaders that remain skeptical about Google products being able to replace traditional productivity suites to read this article. It is the best, most comprehensive guide I've seen for companies trying to understand what it would look like to adopt Google Apps.

And for all my content management colleagues, take note of +AODocs  on page 22. Compelling.
The Cloud Alliance today published a practical guide named “the Business Transformation Guide for Google Apps”. I love this document because parts of it were collaborative contributed by all of the cloud alliance partners. All 19 members had access and could edit simultaneously. Imagine if this document was produced in InDesign or Word and we had to serial pass it around to collect everyone’s contribution? That would take some time! The guide is ...

Thought some of you might find this worth checking out...

We began our relationship with STA in 2009 when the oldest entered as a Freshman. Not being from this area or having any prior knowledge of the school I was very hesitant until we attended an open house. It has been a great decision. The leadership fundamentals the boys receive from the military program are something you won't find anywhere else. The all male environment encourages/allows (not sure which) the boys to compete academically as naturally as they do with sports. They learn to take pride in their appearance, (they will begin ironing their own shirts!) Faculty and staff are top notch and doing a wonderful job. Our oldest is at college sophomore in Chicago and doing outstanding. We have a senior who's had a great experience and has chosen and been accepted at UST. Our freshman is loving every minute of it and our 8th grader can't wait to start at STA next year.
