Seattle IT Pros Should Head to RetroDex

On Tuesday, November 16, 2010 from 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM (PT) in Seattle, WA, local IT pros should come to RetroDex 2010 (and use code “LockerGnome” for 25% off the already-low price of $38.00)! I will be on stage throughout the event as the emcee with Larry Walsh speaking.

IT professionals, service providers, vendors, bloggers, and media come together to hear predictions from leading technology industry thinkers and discuss the present and future with their technology industry peers. During 2010 virtualization and tele-presence made their mark and Comdex returned to a virtual Las Vegas. RetroDex 2010 is the perfect place to meet real live technology people whether or not you are participating virtually in Comdex.

Leading up to the event we will be conducting a One Question survey of IT decision makers where we ask: What one technology product changed your business computing the most in 2010? And what do you think it will be in 2011? We will be presenting the results of this survey at the RetroDex 2010 events. RetroDex 2010 events are being held simultaneously at incredible venues across the country on the evening of November 16th, 2010.

Register for RetroDex 2010 (and remember to use code LockerGnome for 25% off)!

TechSay Says IT Surveys Pay

Breckenridge Cartwright (I swear that’s his name) thought this might be up your alley:

We figure the readers of Lockergnome might be interested in joining TechSay. If they do, they can get paid for their opinions on IT issues through online surveys. We know they are not going to answer a survey for “the chance to win an iPod”, so we just pay cash.

We use a point system to handle the fact that we pay out in USD, Canadian dollars, Euros, British Pounds, etc. but in any case for each questionnaire the participant knows in advance how much they will make (minimum $10). IT pros tend to like the money, but according to what we’ve heard, they also like being able to “fix” products / software / services that they will end up using on a daily basis.

We’d like you to invite your readers to join TechSay.

Okay, so obviously I’ll get a credit if I refer you to take these surveys – but I’m largely interested in getting paid for the feedback I have been previously been handing out for free.
