April 16, 2007 – Today, AITA announced that Mark Aubin, Founder of Keyhole, Inc. which became Google Earth, will provide the lunchtime keynote during AITA’s Annual Spring Conference April 26th at the Birmingham Wynfrey.
The full day’s agenda will focus on Excellence in Alabama Technology, and will include compelling topics that affect Alabama’s technology innovators such as capital updates, CEO and CIO panel discussions, and updates from Alabama’s leading voices on Recruiting, Retention, and Outsourcing. With a focus on innovation, Mr. Aubin will share how while at Silicon Graphics he founded Keyhole, the technology that became Google Earth and the process he undertook to achieve this now globally used product from Google.
