TechKnowledgE “Talent” Conference?

The Social Customer Manifesto: Future of Talent
Seth Godin has a strong piece up today on the mindset shift taking place in the “human resources” functions of large organizations. Seth:

“Like it or not, in most organizations HR has grown up with a forms/clerical/factory focus. Which was fine, I guess, unless your goal was to do something amazing, something that had nothing to do with a factory, something that required amazing programmers, remarkable marketers or insanely talented strategy people.

So, here’s my small suggestion, one that will make some uncomfortable.

Change the department name to Talent.”

Relating this to our Spring Conference, perhaps we should be celebrating our technical talents and putting them on careful display so that others may see and seek to do as well. Just a thought.

Second Life Communivations and Sales Simulation
Our communication / sales simulation is the first and the only commercially available simulation that allows trainee to get experience by practicing communications with the robotic avatars in a virtual environment closely resembling real life.

What if you wanted to create “poet” avatars to converse with your online students? Or perhaps poem avatars that students could question? Intriguing is too mild a word to describe the tingle such a tool provides. Even better what if there was a way for students to create avatars of their own from their own poems? I hope this company expands and makes such a dream do-able
