Hear About the Latest Developments in Wireless Technology -- MITEF presents Dr. Irwin Jacobs -- Wednesday January 11

Wireless Maximus:

Broad Band, Flat World, New Society


Dr. Irwin M. Jacobs

Chairman of Qualcomm Corporation

January 11, 2006  


Exclusive Dinner Program Sponsor



The MIT Enterprise Forum of the Northwest and FiberCloud presents a special dinner program with keynote speaker Dr. Irwin M. Jacobs, Chairman of Qualcomm Corporation.


In the world of telecoms, Dr. Jacobs and Qualcomm parallel the position of Microsoft in I.T. Qualcomm is dominant and controversial in the marketplace, and an economic and philanthropic catalyst for San Diego.  Their technologies are dramatically changing societies from Brazil, Japan and Korea to Russia, India and China.



Dr. Jacobs will present his perspective on such timely issues as:

·         the latest wireless technology developments

·         how wireless and broadband are exponentially accelerating the realization of Thomas Friedman’s “Flat World”, most dramatically in the Third World

·         how this intensifies the pace of social change abroad and the urgency for reforms at home, such as the Jacobs family’s High Tech High charter school in San Diego.

This is a very rare opportunity to see and hear a global titan of transformative technologies.
