Professor Tedlow of Harvard Business School visits the Valley

February 12, 2009

When I was at the Computer History Museum last month to attend Cloud Connect, I came across a familiar name outside one of the doors.  Turns out that Proffesor Richard Tedlow had recently set up shop as the museum’s first resident scholar.  Although he wasn’t my proffessor I definitely remember the name from my time at business school.  I decided to knock on his door and find out what he was working on.

To watch in High Quality: after clicking play, click the “HQ” button that will appear on the bottom.

Some of the topics Professor Tedlow Tackles:

  • His work around the Intel 386 processor.
  • Harvard Business School’s case-writing outpost on Sand Hill road.
  • How technology has effected the business school and using YouTube in class.
  • What in technology right now really excites him.

Heading to California, Cloud Connect and Customers

From the Computer Museum's brochure collection.

Next week I’m making my way back to the Bay Area to attend the Cloud Connect un-conference that is being held Jan 20-22 at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View.

The conference is being held in the unstructured un-conference style which I prefer.  It allows more time for meeting people and talking about what you want to talk about.  That being said, the event won’t be total anarchy and in fact I’m looking forward to the talk David Berlind is moderating Tuesday night.  There is also a cool panel that Red Monk analyst and fellow Eph, Stephen O’Grady is leading the following day on the Cloud and Lock-in.

I will be attending the conference armed with an audio recorder as well as a brand new Flip Mino to try my hand at Video podcasting.  Attendees, you are forewarned 🙂

Checking out Blueprint in Action

While I’m out in the Valley I’m going to visit a couple of big accounts to see first-hand how they are using the Lombardi Blueprint and also get their input on what they’d like to see in the way of new functionality going forward.

The other area that I want to research is the applicability of Blueprint in the supplier chain/operations world.  I think it would be a great fit but i want to check with some contacts out there to get their thoughts.

Stay tuned.

Pau for now…
