The Internet continues to change the way we live and do business, and an all-day event Friday in downtown Rock Hill will spotlight how these changes are playing out around York County.
“The Internet and Our Community” is the theme of the 2009 Old Town New World Conference, which will feature a series of 18-minute presentations by leaders from Piedmont Medical Center, the city of Rock Hill, Winthrop University, York Technical College, the York County Bar Association and others who will discuss innovations already in place and look forward to what technology might bring to their fields in the future.
The forum will be from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the City Club of Rock Hill in downtown. Cost to attend is $100.
Highlights will include discussion of electronic health records and the future of health care, the challenges Rock Hill and other places face competing in the "Knowledge Economy," how the Internet shapes the day-to-day lives of artists, how social media is being taught in college journalism classes, how the Internet is changing the financial services industry and more.
