The TechEd mania has already started.
Until the end of the year we are going to be hearing all sorts of great and exciting stuff that is in, is coming soon, will be presented at TechEd.
For the inner geek it is great therapy.
This is all good but then I saw this post yesterday and thought: ‘What could SAP TechEd do?’
I don’t need to tell you there are people starving every day.
I don’t need to tell you there are child soldiers fighting wars.
I don’t need to tell you that just a little contribution could make a massive difference.
I don’t need to tell you this.
We are about to go to a conference and spend a small fortune on fees, food, hotels and travel.
What if you took a small portion of what you are going to spend on TechEd and made some contribution to help someone break out of poverty? We could do it individually or we could all join in and do something together.
We could all sing and dance about how great we are and how we raised a squillion dollars or silently in the middle of the night a charity (or several ) could get a significant contribution appear in their bank account with no idea where it came from with no one telling them how they have to spend it.
We are a community and we could really make a difference.
We might even change the world.
