Every year at our Leadership 3.0 Symposium we have had one meeting room set up as a "Mac Lab" and one set as a "Windows Lab." We schedule hands-on sessions in those rooms. This year, there have been two interesting developments:
- Very few of the presenters who submitted proposals said they required—or even preferred—to present in a lab room. Our labs are going begging!
- In the past, Apple has always loaned us computers for the Mac lab and we've always been able to find a vendor who would loan us machines for the Windows lab. This year, Apple is still on board but we could not find a vendor to loan as Windows machines. However, we do have loaned machines for a Chromebook lab!
Are these things a fluke or do they portend something significant? Any thoughts?
