Cooler by the minute
So you read about K-Net in the last issue of Channel Chat
and thought, "What next?" Jil Hrdliczka, K-Net innovator, asked herself the same
question. Only she didn't view it rhetorically; she viewed it as an opportunity to fulfill
her vision of staging the first ever technology conference for kids and teenagers.
Because K-Net is one of our key partners in addressing the
education and home computing markets, Jil's vision quickly earned our support and became
the K-Net/Microsoft National Technology Conference for kids and teenagers.
Says Helen Putland, our reseller manager: "While
Microsoft has the products that make learning fun, K-Net's approach to making technology
accessible to kids provides us with an excellent vehicle to really reach kids and
"In terms of developing the market for the Microsoft
Home range, K-Net is one of the most exciting concepts we've seen in this country."
So how did the conference go? 500 delegates nationwide
responded with enthusiasm to an action-packed program and the majority cited the Microsoft
Home sessions as the conference highlight. Ask yourself: "What next?"
