Disruptive tech: the unrecognizable new world of tech and culture

Tuesday Luncheon, 12 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Presented by David Pogue, Founder of Yahoo Tech, Author, and the Former Personal-Technology Columnist for the New York Times

Wearable tech, the cloud, drones, the quantified self, the Internet of Things, self-driving cars, augmented reality: the tech of our world is changing faster and faster. But the fascinating part is the effect it’s having on the society and culture we once new. What will life be like when printed newspapers and printed books are niche relics? What are the ramifications of the massive services-for-privacy trade that young people, especially, seem willing to make? 

In this funny, fast-paced snapshot of the new world, Yahoo Tech columnist David Pogue will bring you up to date – and help you consider what we’ll gain, what we’ll lose, and what beliefs will shift into something we’ve never seen before.


endeavour to succeed

Wednesday Luncheon, 12 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Presented by Captain Mark Kelly, Commander of Space Shuttle Endeavour's Final Mission and Space and Aviation Contributor for NBC News/MSNBC

On January 8, 2011, Captain Mark Kelly would face the toughest challenge of his life when an assassination attempt was made on his wife, former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.  His dedication to family and Giffords's road to recovery would captivate the nation.  For Mark Kelly, focus equals success-even in the face of adversity.  Personifying the best of the American spirit, Kelly is a homegrown hero who was a combat pilot in Iraq, an astronaut on four space shuttle missions, and commander of the final flight of Space Shuttle Endeavour. He has combined teamwork, leadership, communication, and family in an unwavering commitment to succeed. Kelly shows audiences how to accomplish their mission while maintaining the love and devotion to family that is the foundation of true success.
