My Prediction for OGS Guest Speaker #LS11

It used to be so easy, just guess Shatner, that was until to the delight of many, he actually was the guest speaker at the 2010 OGS. One could guess Leonard Nimoy with the whole Vulcan theme, but I am not a Trekkie, and I don’t think it will be Nimoy.

So my prediction is Mark Zuckerberg. Regardless if you love Facebook, hate Facebook, spend your whole life on Facebook, or wouldn’t create an account on Facebook, you have to admit that Facebook has had a major impact.

For a conference with a theme of “Get Social, Do Business”, let’s face it a lot of Social activity is taking place on Facebook, and increasingly more businesses are setting up shop on Facebook, I think Mark Zuckerberg could bring an interesting perspective to kick off the OGS on Monday morning.

I can think of many reasons why IBM would not bring in Zuckerberg as a guest speaker, but it’s my guess anyway. Do you have a guess? Leave a comment.
