As part of the “Intel Advisors” program, my fellow Cast of Dads co-host Michael Sheehan (@hightechdad) and I were the lone males at the recent “Upgrade Your Life” experience at Intel‘s Santa Clara headquarters. Â Surrounded by a bevy of talented womenÂ entrepreneursÂ and bloggers we were treated to anÂ inspiring peek inside Intel and in particular, a deeper look at some ways technology is impacting our environment, our health and our education — in essence, how technology is impacting our lives and the lives of our families. I attended this event last year as well, where, among other things, I was introduced to the Intel Reader, a fascinating product to help the visually impaired. Â There was a lot of great information and learning at this year’s event as well and I look forward to sharing more details here. Â Meanwhile there is a good overview at the Intel Inside Scoop blog, and below is a short video recap Michael and I recorded in the lobby.
ï»¿Jeff Sass is the proud dad of ZEO (Zach, 23, Ethan, 21 and Olivia, 19). Â He is also a seasoned entertainment and technology exec and active social media enthusiast.
