Care about San Antonio's technology movement. Plan on attending the first Technical Advocates of San Antonio's first meeting April 30.

If you care about the growth of technology in San Antonio, keep April 30 at noon open.   The Technology Advocates of San Antonio Club is hosting its first meeting of 2009 at Chama Gaucha Restaurant, 18318 Sonterra Place.

Donald Jakeway, the president and chief executive at the Brooks Development Authority will speak on how his organization is working towards creating a world-class research and technology center.  I don't know much about Brooks except for the fact that I was amazed at how the city of San Antonio showed some innovation in creating the Brooks City-Base project.   And, I also know that several other communities, such as New Orleans, are looking at similar arrangements in transforming former military units into similar types of operations.

Under the leadership of Jim Slattery, the founding president of TASA, the organization is revamping its image as an advocate of technology for our city.   As TASA's publicity director and a board of director, I hope that the organization can regain its fervor for helping our growing base of technology endeavors.

So, if you are like me and care about the growth of technology in our fair city, please make plans to attend this event.  Tickets cost $20 per person, and reservations are available by emailing:
