Lessons from The Breakfast Club, Live Broadcast Tonight and More for 1/5/2015

I typed 2015 up there, right?  Phew, I did.

Here we are in 2015, and while we still don’t have flying cars or self-lacing shoes, we do have our first live broadcast of the year taking place tonight, some lessons from The Breakfast Club that you probably missed, our first networking event of the year is next week, and more…

IMG_20141016_175910_019Our first casual networking event of 2015 will take place next Thursday , January 15th.

We’re kicking the year off at our home base, the back room of the Blackfinn in Royal Oak.

ITintheDnewspaper5pm 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.

Details can be found here on the site – http://www.itinthed.com/meet/, on our Facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/ITinTheD, or in our Meetup group – http://www.meetup.com/ITintheD/

If nothing else, you should absolutely listen to the last few minutes of the show as we got a little reflective and thoughtful looking back on 2014 and heading into 2015.  We even went ahead and isolated that for you here:


Want to know a little more about our weekly show, what it’s all about and why we do it?  Read http://www.itinthed.com/15982/what-is-the-it-in-the-d-show-detroit-technology-podcast/  Just need a high level overview?  Check out the basics at http://www.itinthed.com/listen/

7bfastBlog entries?  Oh, of course we have some of those for you, including a new one that clues you in to 7 career lessons that you probably missed from the Breakfast Club.  Why?  Because if you’ve listened to our show at all or spent more than 10 minutes talking with us, then you know that we exist in a world primarily made up of John Hughes movies, the soundtracks from those movies, and the quotes from those movies.  And no, it’s not only because we’re all idiots trapped in days gone by…it’s also because there are some pretty powerful lessons that we’ve carried forward into our adult lives from those movies that shaped our childhoods.  So go give that a read at http://www.itinthed.com/16284/7-career-lessons-the-breakfast-club/
