WLRN Public Radio in Miami has a regular feature hosted by Tom Hudson called The Sunshine Economy that “…takes a fresh look at the key industries transforming South Florida into a regional powerhouse.” Tom often discusses technology issues and the program is worth listening to at 9 AM on Monday mornings.

Tom also hosts the “Power Lunch with Tom Hudson” series of luncheon discussions, which is sponsored by Kaufman, Rossin, a leading South Florida accounting firm. That series brings together thought leaders from the region to discuss business topics of interest and the discussions are captured on video.

Tom recently held a Power Lunch to consider the technology industry and, not surprisingly, he included SFTA’s own Chairman, Lenny Chesal. Lenny made some key points about the need for collaboration and a regional approach. It was a thought provoking discussion and you might like to see the highlights:
