IT in the D Tonight, Plus News, Jobs and Other Updates


July?  Already?!  Who let that happen?!

It’s going to be hard to follow last week’s IT in the D episode, but we’re going to try as we go on live tonight at 9pm.

No brewery in-studio tonight, which makes us a little sad, but I’m sure we’ll find a way to struggle through.

Our next event is still a couple weeks away, but we’ve got blog entries for you to read and past episodes of IT in the D to catch up on via our site or iTunes, so let’s just get started and see where this winds up…

As always though, we start with our next event.

2013-04-18_18-01-25_423Thursday, July 18th.

Back room of the Blackfinn in Royal Oak.

5:01pm start time.

The details can be found at a variety of locations, depending on your preference.

.facebook_-117262309Tonight, we’ll be live on the…ummm…air?  Ethernet?  How does one refer to an internet radio show?

Whatever.  We’ll be live at 9pm again tonight for the next installment of IT in the D.

Tonight will be episode 5, and we’re just running with the working title of “Something, Something, Something…Strikes Back”.

We’ve got a couple cool, fun folks joining us in studio tonight who just happen to be QA wizards.

I know, I know…”cool” and “fun” doesn’t necessarily belong next to “QA”, but I assure you, they’re good people.  Who just happen to have an anal retentive streak upon which they’ve built a career.  It happens.

If you’re not familiar with the IT in the D show, you can read up on it here:

Missed a past episode or two and want to catch up?  On that same page, you can break out to the individual show archives that live over at, or you can also listen to us on iTunes as well by going to

Yes, we’re on iTunes.

Yes, I know I constantly poke fun at Apple, their products, and the users of their products.

I also make fun of Bob constantly, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t useful at times.

And you can make yourselves a little more useful by hitting up the iTunes feed and giving us the accolades and awesome ratings that we so richly deserve.

Or you can be honest,  I guess.  Whatever works for you.

So tune in tonight at 9pm by hitting and following the links to the live stream, where you’ll also be able to grab the TuneIn Radio app for your platform of preference.  You can also interact with us live during the show by calling in to 313.462.0107, and you can hit us on Twitter at our @ITinTheD account –

Hope you join us tonight.


melWe wound up doing two sessions of “The 10 Commandments of Networking” last week, and so it’s appropriate that it bubbled up on the site.  What’s that?  You’re not familiar with the 10 Commandments of Networking?  Oh, you should be.  Read:

Also from the “oldies but goodies” department, we’ve got Don’t Be That Guy: Self Important Twitter Guy out at, because, well, there are Those Who Must Be Stopped.

We’ve also go How Not To Suck at Sales at, and if you’ve ever wondered why we’re so vehemently against job fairs, you should probably read Through The Looking Glass over at for a candid explanation.

1014380_10151646218423820_1000191692_nSpeaking of “candid”…are you hooked in with us on Facebook yet?

You really should be.

We play, we post memes and stuff that make us laugh, we have a good time, and it’s just generally a playground.  Plus, it’s a good way to keep up on whatever the latest and greatest is that we have going on.

So get yourself over to and give us a “like” already.

While you’re there, we’ve created a separate page for the IT in the D show since we didn’t want to clutter up the main page with show-specific items, so if you manage to click “like” once without spraining your thumb or going into cardiac arrest, do the same thing for so that we can feel better about ourselves.

Do it.  DO IT!!!  Don’t make me resort to guilt trips.

We’ve got our LinkedIn group as well, and here’s a little bit of what’s going on in this week:

– 9 reasons why your SysAdmin hates you:

– Because we’re not just all about IT, what do you think about Duggan mounting a campaign as a write in candidate for Detroit?

– What’s that?  Facebook gathers data about you?  That you don’t know about?  And it accidentally leaked out all over the place?  Oops.

– Back doors in WordPress.

– The NSA conversation’s never going to end.  It just isn’t.  And probably shouldn’t.

ITintheD-funnelAnd jobs.  Oh yes, plenty of jobs.  And recruiters, we’re begging you…please read Don’t Be That Guy: The Drive By Recruiter over at

It will help you, I promise.

Most importantly, it’ll help everyone in the group.

But back on topic, yes, there are plenty of jobs sitting in the group right now if you’re looking, know someone who’s looking, or are just curious.
