I have worked around some very cool technologies over the last 20 years...but nothing compares to what is coming in the next  few years.  Context Awareness Computing, in which your smartphone using GPS determines your location...compares it to interesting landmarks and events nearby using GIS...while cross-referencing that info to your calendar, the weather, traffic conditions, and recent news events to guide you to the quickest route "to your next adventure".  This is all good for those of us in IT who support all the networks, databases, middleware, and hybrid cloud storage! 

Come learn tomorrow's technology...
