Let’s Co-Create A New Vision for SMAC Convergence

We are now writing the introductory chapter in TechAmerica’s research examining the nexus of social, mobile, analytics, and cloud.  CSC is hosting a #SpeedIdeation event with an open discussion on the changing role of government, the meaning of national security, and our entire approach to intelligence collection and law enforcement. … Join the co-creation Monday (9/29/14). … Your comments will help shape the research and we will, of course, acknowledge your contribution in the final report.

#SpeedIdeation CrowdChat Sep 22 – 3pm CEST, 9am EDT

This coming week we’ll start one hour earlier. Soren and Thomas will lead a discussion on public WiFi for business purposes as discussed on Twitter. The two main hosts will publish more information soon. Chat will be as usual here: https://www.crowdchat.net/SpeedIdeation   /Chris

Die Kamera wird dann angewiesen, auf dieses Objekt zu zielen. Der Einfachheit halber ist es sinnvoll, hierfür einen begrenzten Raum von (-1,-1,-1) bis (1,1,1) aufzuspannen, in dem das Objekt positioniert… Read More
