Channeling

The impresario is not of mere historic interest; the role is today as important as ever. Digital Consulting's George Schussel styles himself in this role, for example. Among other things, he was instrumental in getting a reluctant Larry Constantine back into the front lines of software development. He and Rick Friedman, yet another industry impresario, were major forces in bringing object technology to the attention of a widening audience. Orchestrating some of the most successful conference programs in the industry was KoAnn Tingley Vikoren, the former impresaria of the Software Development Conferences who got me involved in the very first one in 1988.

Fittingly, the country that gave us the word has it's own impresario of information technology. Giovanni Modica is not only a great Italian cook, but he has a passionate vision of helping to transform Italy into a world leader in information systems development. The means is technology transfer, which is also the name of his company. By importing the best and the brightest from around the world, he hopes to brighten the future of Italian development practices. He is likely to succeed. Through zeal and sincerity he has assembled a portfolio of world-class presenters who now make regular stops in Milan and Rome to bring the latest in effective methods and tools to Italian developers.
