Instrumented Interconnecteds Intelligent

sc_banner_530x200 As readers of this blog will remember, over the past year, we’ve spent a lot of time convening leaders from the public and private sectors to discuss the future of our cities. We started in Berlin in June, then, in November hosted another Smarter Cities forum in New York City. In between these major international sessions, we’ve been hosting dozens of local fora in cities around the world. We’ve had mayors, governors, CEO and a whole host of civic and federal officials participate in the conversations. In fact, we’ll be convening another large meeting in Shanghai in early June.

But, physical events are necessarily limiting in their access and participation. Thus, to address that issue, we are going to be hosting the first ever Smarter Cities Virtual Event on February 23. The event will allow anybody to participate live, online, in discussions addressing the weighty issues our cities face, including transportation, education, energy, public safety and more. This is not just a webcast of the same content. Rather, they will be interactive sessions probing deeply on these big topics.

I’ve included a sampling of the agenda below (more details can be found on the registration page on ibm.com). We’ll be sharing some major recaps from the event here on the blog next week. You can also follow along on Twitter @smarterplanet and the event hashtag (forthcoming). But if you are interested in participating in the conversation live, register now.

Here’s a sampling of the agenda:

Main tent:

  • Bridget Van Kralingen, IBM
  • North Carolina Governor Bev Perdue
  • Joseph Rigby, President & CEO, Pepco Holdings

As in all of our Smarter Cities conferences, the “main tent” sessions are followed by interactive breakout sessions probing much deeper into the major systems that comprise a smarter city. The Virtual Smarter Cities Forum will host the following:

  • Smarter Energy, moderated by Guido Bartels, IBM and Todd McGregor, PHI
  • Smarter Transportation, moderated by Gerry Mooney, IBM; Pat McCrory, Moore & Van Allen, (and former Mayor of Charlotte, NC); and Bob Kingston, McCarran Airport, Las Vegas
  • Smarter Government, moderated by Nicole Gardner, IBM; Barbara Ramsey, Oklahoma Employment Security Commission; and Don R. Edwards, Alameda County Social Services Agency
  • Smarter Education, moderated by Mike King, IBM; J.L. Albert, Georgia State University; and Sharon P. Pitt, George Mason University
  • Smarter Public Safety, moderated by George Cruser, IBM; Stephen Hollifield, City of Richmond Police; and Pat McCrory, McCrory & Co. (and former Mayor of Charlotte, NC)
  • Smarter Healthcare, moderated by Patrick Boyle, IBM; Daniel Martich, University of Pennsylvania Medical Center; and Asif Ahmad, of Duke University Health System

We hope to “see” you next week.

Employer and managerial control within an organization rests at many levels and has important implications for staff and productivity alike, with control forming the fundamental link between desired outcomes and actual processes. Employers must balance interests such as decreasing wage constraints with a maximization of labour productivity in order to achieve a profitable and productive employment relationship.“

Lick and swallow that delicious cum off his cock and balls! He did not give her time to stretch and accommodate his, massive to a child’s body, cock. Can you believe that the little cunt was still a virgin? She stepped out into the hall, took a few steps toward me, and when six or seven feet away, swung around and posed with her back to me. We are living in a onebedroom apartment, but at least it is fairly decent, noisy but decent. public upskirt play -1 wife nylon upskirt tubes -1 Susan would slow the water down when she heard me grunt and saw my ass rise into the air trying to get away from the pain of the cramps. I was so sore from that orgasm. And she had enjoyed it. Sometimes it’s like that. The young woman was just finishing off a redhead. christa allen upskirt -1 upskirt latina mom -1 I hadn’t heard that from him in over fifteen years. At least, it was impressive from behind. Well, if you’ve finished, shall we go back to the hotel now? Now she could fuck a big dick with abandon and get the release she yearned, but instead the fucking only stoked the fires of uninhibited wantonness. An unscrupulous sex peddler could sometimes unload a woman and her child on an unfortunate man by claiming that he had gotten her pregnant without the owner’s permission. timekiller upskirt 2009 jelsoft enterprises ltd -1 granny sara upskirt ass -1

Building a smarter planet.The sentense is wonderful.Let us treat
each country as stars.Some stars are brighter than others.
So what are the steps we needed to brighten the other stars.
Cleanness in a place makes a place more attractive.We can compare Singapore to USA.What makes singapore a shining star.Its the hard work and the strict rules makes them on the top.Polythene covers must be banned whole over the IBM campuses and in the world also.Trees must be planted more.Water must be protected by building more dams beacause i am sure in the comming days,years there will be less rain also.Protect environment by using low smoke emitting vehicles and above all pray to God makes a good mind in all of them which will change the whole planet.
