I'd like to thank Kathy Land for her contributions to the 2009 Presidential Blog. And for those who think she is "getting away"; besides responsibilities as Past President she is also an IEEE Director Elect, so it will be a few years before she escapes that role.
Kathy had used this Blog to provide members with insight to some of the actions and challenges we have faced as both the Computer Society and with our parent IEEE organization. Feedback has indicated that this is useful, and appreciated insight to the activities of our governing bodies. It is also "news", that has a timely aspect to it -- both in terms of delivery and in the sense that a member may wish to see what transpired in, for example, the spring of 2009. I am going to encourage us to use a web site for posting this information, either as part of the Presidents Corner, or one with more of a focus on transparency of the activities of our Board and leadership. Please see: http://www.computer.org/portal/web/presidentscorner/home for updates on where this may be found.
As we move into 2010, I hope to post periodic notes here (every few weeks or so) that present some of the challenges I see us facing in our profession(s). My hope is to solicit feedback and engagement from you-all --our members. As we move into the second decade of the 21st century, we will be using more of the Web 2.0 tools available from Computer.org (2.0) and reflecting the significant improvements that have been underway for some time in the Computer Society (3.0 I'm tempted to say).
Best wishes for a successful 2010. .... And watch this space, better, respond to the blog comments here as part of our transition into decade of the "Twenty-Teens".
