EDMONTON, Alberta - Sept. 29, 2018 - PRLog -- The Canadian Cloud Council cordially invites you to attend the opening chapter of Change Becomes Us on November 28, 2018 in downtown Edmonton.

As the doomsday clock ticks closer to Permanence (www.permanence.live) - our flagship annual event on March 28, 2019 - we are delighted to present a series of decidedly formal evening interchanges exploring the role of technology in advancing an open, secure and equitable digital economy.

"Since the inception of the council in 2011, the cloud has evolved from being a disruptive technological solution to the catalyst of the sharing economies that will define the 21st Century. Cloud computing has rapidly emerged as the foundation for technological innovations that can drive a more connected, open, accessible, equal and sustainable society," commented Robert Brennan Hart, Founder and CEO of The Canadian Cloud Council.

"But, like every resource in every previous wave of innovation, the technologies, economics and societies built on the cloud also risk becoming the exclusive preserve of a select few; shifting control from one generation of oligarchs to another, and keeping the vast majority of humanity consigned to their role as passive consumers; with no control over their destinies and no agency over their future."

"Our emerging generation is hungering for a clear and common sense of purpose, but can we offer them one? Can the digital economy be rebooted to serve not just the top 1% of the top 1% but to serve the future of humanity? Can we finally reconcile growth with equality, profits with people, economics with environment? Can innovation finally serve the greater good?"

The willing participants of Change Becomes Us' inaugural roundtable discussion include:

Paul Bellows, CEO of Yellow Pencil | Owen Brierley, President of Edmonton Digital Arts College | Mark Bryant, CIO of PCL | Alyson Hodson, CEO of Zag Creative I Sam Jenkins, Partner at Punchcard Systems I Ashif Mawji, Venture Partner at Rising Tide | Stephanie McLean, Former Minister of Service Alberta | Brian Stewart, Deputy CIO at University of Alberta | Tina Thomas, Executive Director of Strategy and Innovation at Edmonton Public Library | Daryl Vleeming, CIO of Aurora Cannibas
