May 26, 2021

AIM Infotec, one of the Midwest’s largest annual conferences for people working in tech careers, will be on May 27 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and provided for free in 2021.  Mike Smith, an international-level public speaker with local ties to the nonprofit world, will be the keynote for this year’s event.

Smith is cofounder of the nonprofit, Rabble Mill, based in Lincoln and Omaha.  Rabble Mill works with Nebraska youth statewide toward their belonging , purpose and upward mobility through its subculture programming in skateboarding, music and digital art.  Both Rabble Mill and AIM work to cultivate and retain talent in parts of the region where it often goes overlooked.

Over the course of this two-part interview, Smith and Mike Hogan chat about the key to engaging and helping youth, how just a little effort by a mentor figure can reap huge rewards for the kids and society, and how the IT world is being impacted by young people today.
