Slide from session


I was honored to be be selected to speak at San Jose State's Information School last month.

San Jo is my hometown and it was super cool to be able to speak at SJSU!

I hope you find this worthwhile.

Comments encouraged!

Special thanks to Dr. Michele Villagran and San Jose State!
