Open Forum: TLDC History, Disappearing Tech, and a Better LMS

Our special guest could not make it today, so Brent took a chance to share his insight to the L&D community and the TLDC community, specifically. It was a good talk on new members, the history of TLDC, and how big the community is getting. We dove into a discussion around technology that is fading and it triggered a talk on the LMS and how to make it better or how to make something completely new.
