Microsoft CEO speaks at Trevecca campus event
Wednesday, January 20, 2010
Nashville, Tennessee
Trevecca Nazarene University hosted the annual meeting of the Nashville Technology Council on January 20. More than 800 individuals from the Nashville technology community attended the breakfast meeting that began at 7 A.M., held in the convocation center of the Boone Business Building.

The line-up of speakers was a major attraction. Nashville Mayor Karl Dean brought greetings. Editor-in-chief of CIO Magazine Abbie Lundberg spoke about technology trends for 2010. Then Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft, gave the keynote address. He recounted some of the shifts and trends that computer use and development had produced, and then he highlighted some of Microsoft's recent innovations and described additional ones that are soon to be released.

Ballmer's one-day visit to Nashville was part of his multi-city tour to promote Microsoft as the company that can solve problems for specific industries. He later met with leaders in the healthcare field.

The morning's events also included a meeting of Ballmer and students from local colleges and universities, which Trevecca students attended. One Trevecca student had Ballmer sign his Apple MacBook, an act which was all over the internet in a matter of hours.
