This is it, our last live broadcast of 2014 happens tonight.
We’re winding things down for the year, which basically means that we’re putting the finishing touches on the first part of 2015 and all of the fun things coming.
We’ve got memes and fun on our Facebook page, our first casual networking event for 2015 scheduled and ready for you, a few good conversations going on in our LinkedIn group and more going on, so let’s get to some details…
We’re kicking the year off at our home base, the back room of the Blackfinn in Royal Oak.
5pm start time, no cover charge to get in, no sales pitches, no agendas, no nonsense. Just good, solid opportunities to get to know some of the best and brightest folks in the metro Detroit information technology community. Looking forward to seeing you there.
But that’s a few weeks off, and you can get your weekly dose of us tonight during our live broadcast.
Along with the usual “end of the year” stuff you’d expect – our rundown of the best and worst of 2014 including a look back at our guests, our shows, our events, the stories that made us laugh and the ones that made us cringe – we’re also being joined in-studio by Eric and Aaron from Ersa Group to talk security, ethics, and oversight in the IT world at large. Pretty timely given that a lot of the stories we talked about on our shows this year dealt with various hacking incidents and the swirling rumors that the Sony breach may have been an inside job. So join us by listening live from 9pm to 11pm, and then hit us up by calling 313.462.0107 or firing up Twitter and hitting @ITintheD during the show. We love audience participation, so come along and play with us!

You’ve seen Scarface, right? Bet you didn’t know there are some good career lessons in there that you probably missed. Check out 5 Career Lessons from Scarface That You Probably Missed over at http://www.itinthed.com/16224/5-career-lessons-from-scarface-that-you-probably-missed/
The one that’s got an interesting conversation going on in our LinkedIn group is actually an older entry that bubbled back up, and that’s about whether the IT market is great or terrible right now…because the answer varies depending on who you ask – employers, employees, or those looking. So check it out at http://www.itinthed.com/3585/is-the-it-market-great-or-terrible-right-now-or-is-it-both/ and then go check out the discussion on LinkedIn here.
