Talking Tech with Professor Simon

Encouraging important discussions about the role of technology in our society.

Introduction

I posted this in my Slack workspace for my students in CIS235: Intro to Information Systems. I’m reposting it here.


 

As you probably know by now, I enjoy learning and reading about technology. Ditto for discussing it with others. I like to think that I’ve picked up a thing or six about the subject in my years (#humblebrag). Besides researching and writing a bunch of books and reading hundreds more, I spent more than a decade helping organizations deploy new technologies.

If you pay attention to the news (and you absolutely should), then you know that tech is everywhere these days.

Everywhere.

Against this backdrop, I have decided to host a series of open discussion sessions. The goal: To talk about different technologies and the effects that they are having on business, society, and the world.

There’s no preset agenda but I doubt that we’ll be lacking for content.

Details are below. Feel free to pass this along to any of your classmates. This is an open invitation.

When

Every Monday and Wednesday.

Why

Because understanding technology is really freaking important. It’s easy to look like a jackass if you don’t. 

Who

Any ASU student in my class or not.

When

12:25 pm to 12:45 pm.

Where

BA396.
