Don't encourage Charlie Sheen

Scott Klososky, author, entrepreneur and advisory board member for Critical Technologies, kept the audience at American Council for Technology-Industry Advisory Council's Executive Leadership Conference in Williamsburg, Va., entertained with an hour-long evening keynote on the untapped potential of technology tools.

Early on, he noted that disgraced actor Charlie Sheen has attracted a sizeable Twitter following for his unfiltered musings. Klososky asked the audience if they followed Sheen. Only a few hands went up, but that was enough. "Stop it," Klososky commanded. "You're just encouraging him at this point."

Later, Klososky pointed out that young people are young people regardless of the technologies available to them. A 10-year-old boy is going to waste little time with a connected device before he's searching for terms like "kissing" or "naked." After waiting a moment for the audience reaction to fade, he said, "Don't act like you weren't a 10-year-old boy!"

"But I wasn't!" came a female voice in response.
