Risks. Rewards. Innovation?

  • Jan 15, 2014 · 6:30 PM
  • UNC-TV

Technology has expanded the possibilities of what we can do — we can use Glass to augment reality. We can video chat with people on the other side of the world. Pictures taken on the surface of Mars can be sent back to Earth in a few hours. There is so much to do, and so much is possible. But, how do we get to that next level to transform ourselves and our communities?

We’ll need to journey into uncharted territory, and that’s risky. We tend to avoid risk because of FEAR --  fear of the unknown, fear of failure, or fear of consequences. But, risk can sometimes mean great rewards.

Come share risks you've taken or may be planning to take. We'll discuss the possible rewards and also look at what can be learned in the process.

Pizza (sponsored by NTEN & PINInc/RTPNet) and discussion starting at 6:30, program at 7:00.

Many thanks to UNC-TV for being our host for this meeting. If you arrive late and can't get in, call our host, James McGurk, cell phone[masked]-8873. It's hard to see the front door from the meeting room.

We look forward to seeing you there!
