NEW NET Issues List for 11 September 2007

Below is the final list of issues for the TUESDAY, 11 September 2007, NEW NET (Northeast Wisconsin Network for Economy and Technology) 7:00 - 9:00 pm weekly gathering upstairs at Tom's Drive In, 501 N Westhill Blvd, Appleton, Wisconsin, USA.

Last week's NEW NET meeting had a discussion about the amount of time appropriate for employees to spend online on activities related more to personal interests than to company work responsibilities. This week's issues list has several recent articles related to differing viewpoints on that issue.

One of the topics for this week's meeting is the value of an iTouch for people who don't want to have a two-year cell phone contract with AT&T but would like many of the other features of an iPhone.

Another topic for tonight's meeting is the concept of a TechShop in Appleton, Green Bay and/or other Wisconsin locations. That discussion will be continued at the Hive meeting on Thursday at the Stone Cellar.
