I think this is a great topic too. I would like to run with this one as long as a few others would co-host with me?

Subject: Re: ??Tech Conference in May?? - Call for Presentations
Craig, I think it's a wonderful idea to hold a conference for "techies",
similar to those S.Burlington held in past years. I have 2 or 3 guys that
could really benefit from any/all of the topics you listed. There is
another theme, not really a specific topic, that continues to emerge in
our schools, and that has to do with access vs. security. Is too much
blocked or not enough? Are things secure or too inaccessible? There
seems to be 2 avenues around this: lock it down (seems to be our techies
point of view) until they come crying, or leave it open until something
bad happens then patch it. The more we talk about things like
mobile-personal device making access ubiquitous the more we need to
include in this discussion those who are supporting the infrastructure.
It would be a tremendous opportunity for support folks to be included in
this discussion at a tech conference.
