Happy New Year! 2015

Here we are and another year has come and gone.  And as I reflect, I am proud of all we have accomplished!

When the SoCal Digital Symposium (SDS) started as an idea back in 2013 I never would have imagined it would have the respect and following that it has today.  While we launched last year…first in the February at CSU Chanel Islands and then in November at Big Door Studios in El Segundo, the mission and vision has never been more clear.

The SoCal Digital Symposium (SDS) serves as an exciting gathering for Southern California’s diverse group of tech entrepreneurs, scholars, visionaries, business leaders, developers, and power brokers. Every session allows engaged professionals access to stimulating discussions with thought leaders in their respective fields to discuss emerging trends, share innovative ideas, and learn about new and relevant strategies, technologies, and techniques.

The goal of the SDS is to create a forum which allows for open source knowledge that hopefully will be the catalyst for the next wave of innovation in the region.  And as such we spot light leaders who work fervently at their craft whether in the spotlight or quietly behind the scenes.  These are the movers and shakers who change the world…

In an effort to cultivate and deliver increasing quality content, we are launching a monthly newsletter to support and enhance the brick and mortar conference which occurs in various locations around the Los Angeles region. Amanda Wilbur is just one of those amazing pioneers who has worked quietly in our tech community for years and I am thrilled to have her as our first contributor.

I thank you as always for your ongoing support. Here’s to an amazing 2015.  I can’t wait to see what awaits all of us on the horizon.
