Getting Smart at GridWise Global Forum this Week

This just in from the SGSB social media desk - I'll be at the Reagan building in DC starting tomorrow armed with MacBook Air, Twitter and Blogger to both speak at and cover this year's GridWise Global Forum (agenda HERE).

Will be paying particular attention to the opening keynote moderated by IBM Energy & Utilities sector GM Guido Bartels with DOE Secretary Steven Chu and Uzi Landau, who runs Israel's Ministry of National Infrastructures (Tues at 12:45 pm ET), and the following panels:
  • "Guarding the Grid: Smart Grid and Grid Vulnerability" (Tues at 4:30 pm)
  • "The Technology Horizon: Future Trends and Potential Disruptions" (Wed at 8:30 am)
  • "Smart Grid Data: Insights, Privacy, or Both" (Wed at 10:30 am)
  • "Smart Grid and the Regulatory Landscape: Evolution or Revolution" (Wed at 1:30 am)
Two of these sessions will be broadcast live (and free) by our friends at Greentech Media. Follow THIS LINK to tune in at the appointed times to "Guarding the Grid" and "Smart Grid Data."

BTW: will using the #IBM@GridWise hashtag for denizens of the Twitterverse.
