Bill Clinton is probably one of the most talented US presidents in recent history - he had a smooth demeanor, firm grip on the economy, has a near-photographic memory and plays the sax like a pro. And while politics will always divide people and many will be quick to point out the obvious Lewinsky scandal and many other flaws of the 42nd US president, technology unites and that’s what Clinton will take part of as he’s got the last keynote of this year’s International CTIA taking place in New Orleans, Louisiana.
President Clinton will “share his unique perspective on preparing leaders to meet the challenges of global interdependence and implementing innovative solutions to some of the world’s most pressing issues.” The president, a long-time believer in mobile communications, will bring his unique insight on the importance of leadership in that space.
His speech is scheduled for the last day of CTIA, May 10th, and will run from 2:00pm CDT to 3:00pm CDT.
CTIA kicks off two days before that, on May 8th. Last year, it brought forth Sprint’s HTC Evo 3D and AT&T’s LG Thrill 4G, the first 3D handsets in the US. What do you wish for this year?
