Jason Pontin, editor of Technology Review magazine and technologyreview.com will be speaking at the Federal Reserve here in Houston on April 22nd.  The MIT Enterprise Forum has scheduled him as the keynote speaker for their April MIT Flagship event.

Pontin will present “2009TR10” – Revolutionary technologies which will impact the future of Alternative Fuels, Global Healthcare, High Technology and Nanotechnology.

If you don’t know about the MIT Enterprise forum, their mission is to foster successful growth of innovative technology oriented enterprises in the South Texas area by providing access to MIT resources and through services and programs that inform, educate and support these business endeavors. 

I’m looking forward to hearing what Pontin has to say.  The cover of this month’s Technology Review addresses the Top Emerging Technologies of 2009.  There’s some cool stuff they’ve identified, like the $100 Genome and Software-Defined Networking.  It’s worth noting that when browsing through technologyreview.com, there are a number of articles discussing technology companies doing business in Houston.

Glad to see Houston is continuing to be on the radar of tech publications around the country.  With the 9th anniversary of the FastTech 50 and the 10th anniversary of the Houston Technology Center right around the corner, we’ve come a long way in establishing Houston as a technology center in the U.S.
