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.
