If it's early spring, then it must be timer to head to Denver for our annual Cable Next-Gen Technologies & Strategies conference.
Thus, a record-breaking crowd flocked to the Mile High city in late March to enjoy the warm Denver sunshine, hear some killer keynote, watch some poignant PowerPoint presentations, talk trash tech talk, and find out the cable industry's latest advances in the broadband and video sectors, of which there are many.
Of course, folks also came to network and schmooze with old friends and colleagues. So, it's safe to say that most attendees, if not all, left with a little bit of a Rocky Mountain high (you have been reading about those Colorado voter initiatives, no?)
So please click the image below to start the photo gallery while I check my bags to see if any of my Denver goodies escaped the attention of nosy US and Canadian customs officials. (Yes, Homeland Security, I'm kidding.)

Need it in Seattle Folks here in Seattle (proper) are complaining about not being able get broadband speeds so maybe they need this more than Denver. Seriously, some are still only offered near dial up speeds. Not everywhere but in enough places that the Mayor's Office is taking it up as a cause. While I can get both high speed cable and also optical fiber here in the suburbs, no can do in The City! Amazing that this is an issue in the year 2014...
CenturyLink tower I don't think there are many CenturyLink employees left in that office tower to look down on the cable guys--they had been planning reduce their presence there as a couple years ago. But, there are probably a few ghosts from the Qwest and US West regimes that once called it home.
Light Reading is spending much of this year digging into the details of how automation technology will impact the comms market, but let's take a moment to also look at how automation is set to overturn the current world order by the middle of the century.
Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.
During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.
She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
