My friend Karen Quinn Fung is helping Translink organize the Skytrain Security Unconference this coming Saturday. Unfortunately, I have a gazillion things to do, so I won’t be able to attend, although it would be great if people did, particularly because this is a first attempt by Translink (as far as I know) to reach out to people using non-traditional media (aka social media).
I would understand if people brought up issues beyond the scope of the actual unconference (like, you know, issues with regards to transit police, or the need for more Skytrain wagons, etc.) but it would also be nice if people stayed on track. I also would like to note that while I have great expectations for attendance, I wouldn’t be surprised if not many of the people who SHOULD be attending didn’t attend, particularly because of potential issues related to liability, secrecy and confidentiality. I am pretty sure that there are a lot of people who may not be in a position of power within Translink that should be talking about these issues of security and stuff.
Overall, I really would like to encourage my readers to attend and wish Karen all the best with this endeavour. I also would like to ask if any of you attend, please fire me an email and I’ll reproduce your notes (fully credited of course!) here if you want. Or just drop a comment here or on Karen’s Skytrain Unconference blog (linked above).
