That’s right! It’s that time of year again and this year Tech Directors’ Day is NEW AND IMPROVED!
That actually may be overstating things a bit but it has changed some. You can read all about the changes and wax nostalgically about the origins of this special day in all its grandeur by clicking HERE and I highly recommend you do.
In brief, here is the 411.
Firstly, the hashtag this year for the live tweeting of the day is #oktdd16… You will probably want to go ahead and use the #oklaed tag as well or you will just be tweeting to about six people!
Secondly, The Oklahoma Technology Association has officially recognized the day and will potentially be working to get a resolution past the Oklahoma Legislature this year! Thank you OTA for taking this on. (BTW… If you are a member of the Oklahoma Legislature and are reading this and want to make a big group of nerds feel warm and fuzzy for a moment or two, give us a shout at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will work with you to get it going! Now get back to work! Daddy literally needs a new pair of shoes!)
Thirdly, and most importantly, we have moved the date from its traditional observance of February 25th to the FOURTH WEDNESDAY OF FEBRUARY from now until the end of the Gregorian Calendar! The reason for this is obvious… It of course gives us two days to promote this around the office every year so someone might feel obligated to bring us cookies on that Wednesday! Genius don’t you think?
So set your calendars people! We have a day to celebrate!
