DAY 3 @ 2016 Niagara Summit Highlights — Keynote Speaker David Pogue — Out for a Funrun with Technology. DAY 3 @ 2016 Niagara Summit Highlight — Keynote Speaker David Pogue. David has over 3 million books in print, was founder of Yahoo Tech, and serves as the personal-technology columnist for the New York Times. David enlightened, entertained, challenged, and inspired the Niagara Community with his humorous, but piercing insight into the forces changing our lives and our careers. 80% of the new movies, new books and new technology will not be success stories, but the message wasn’t the math. Run with technology; not against it. Great job Tridium — on another great Niagara Summit.
