Program Meeting

September NEO STC Community Meeting:
Please join the Northeast Ohio STC Community on Thursday, September 11, 2014 for Google GLASS: the Technical Writing Paradigm Shift, presented by Brad Henry.

Brad Henry will speak about Google GLASS and how this emerging technology will impact the world and generate a paradigm shift into the technical writing field. After he explains the reality of GLASS versus perceptions created by media and social media, he will explore future and realistic uses. Soon, technical writers may develop manuals that installers, end users and repair technicians will access through GLASS. As an example, he will discuss a prototype that he developed that fuses medical devices and GLASS.

Our presenter, Brad Henry is a 20-plus year veteran in the information technology field.
