VT Blogs: Aiken Lecture Series

Posted By on Wed, Sep 28, 2005 at 10:40 AM

This is cool. UVM has launched a blog to promote its 2005-2006 George D. Aiken Lecture Series. The organizers of the series have this to say about the Aiken Lecture Series blog, dedicated to this year's theme, "Visioning the Future and Vermont":

Please feel free to use this site to actively participate in theconversation. We, the organizers of the George D. Aiken Lecture Series,want you to own the content of this site and have an active dialog withyour fellow community members. We are not attempting to direct theconversation or push out an agenda, just offer you a forum for exchange.

It doesn't look like it'll be updated very regularly — the last and only day on which posts were made is Sept. 23 — but it does provide an innovative forum.

The kick-off event for the series is a Sept. 29th lecture by Futurist Atul Dighe, who will address "The 5 Big Questions About the Future." The UVMers have posted the 5 questions on their blog, and they're asking folks to answer them however they see fit. I think it's an exciting and creative approach. I wonder if anyone will do it.

Thanks, Zephyr T., for the tip.

    Social Sentinel, a Burlington-based company that identifies threatening content on social media, was among the winners of the 2018 Tech Jam awards, presented last Friday at the 12th Vermont Tech Jam. The prizes, given annually by the Vermont Technology Alliance, BTV Ignite and Seven Days, recognize leaders in the state's tech ecosystem. The awards ceremony was the culmination of a busy day at the free career and tech expo organized by Seven Days and presented by Vermont Works. Representatives from more than 50 companies and colleges talked with hundreds of attendees who walked the expo floor. Jeff Couture, executive director of the Vermont Technology Alliance, said he talked with job seekers from across Vermont and outside the state at the event, "including someone, suitcase in hand, who visited from North Carolina."
