2011 NTC Preview: Let's Talk About Tech, Baby

NTEN

Let's Talk about Tech, Baby As simple as it may seem, making the commitment to talk about technology in your organization is a good start. Many non-tech people (i.e., people who aren't responsible for the technical decisions in your organization; all humans are tech people) will only tolerate a technical discussion if they can see immediately how it helps them. We live inside the tech jargon bubble, so it's easy to forget that not everyone does.
