IT in the D Tonight, Event Thursday, and So Much More…

I don’t know exactly how it happened that this week suddenly got so insane, but it did, so here we go.

We’ve got our IT in the D live broadcast tonight.

Our first casual networking event of the year takes place Thursday night.

And then there’s other random stuff through the week leading up to Saturday night and the guilty little pleasure I’ve developed over the past year…

Anyway, let’s get to some details, shall we?  We shall…

photo 4As always, we start with our next upcoming event.

Our first casual networking event for professionals in and around the metro Detroit information technology community will be Thursday night.

Royal Oak.


Back room.

5:01pm start time.

Our Facebook page is where we amuse ourselves. You should totally go give it a “like”.

No agenda. No speakers. No 30-second commercials. No cover charge. No free lunch. Never. Just networking with IT professionals. Plain and simple.

You can find out all about our events here on the site at our Events page –, our Facebook page –, and in our Meetup group –

Looking forward to seeing everyone there to kick off the year together with a great event.

If you don’t want to wait until Thursday to get a dose of us, you’re in luck.

You can catch us live tonight for our weekly IT in the D broadcast.

Tonight will be our 26th episode, and oh, do we have a lot to talk about.

Your crew of hard-hitting, responsible journali… bwahahaha…sorry, it’s us, beer, slim jims and ranting. Tune in live, dammit

Naturally, there’s the Snowmageddon that kept us out of the studio last week.  There’s the crazy numbers that the stupid Hoth meme up there got after we posted it…and what our analysis afterwards has led us to believe.  That Target hack that just keeps getting worse and worse each day.  Whacky mayhem with yet another Detroit city council member.

And so, so much more.

So listen live tonight from 9pm to 11pm, folks…odds are good it’s gonna be a fun ride.

Did we mention you can call in?  You can call in.  Tune in live for the number and join in the fun!

XICW_ring12bSpeaking of fun…if you’re not sick of us by Saturday, you can come join Bob and I at our weekend guilty pleasure.


Live wrestling.

Live professional wrestling.

No really, swear to whatever deity you believe in…that’s where we’ll be on Saturday night.

And yes, that’s “the IT in the D show” up on top there…long story, but it’s all Bob’s fault, I assure you.

So check out XICW over at and come join us on Saturday night for some chaos and fun times.  It’s honestly a blast…I’ve become a total convert over the past two years.

We’ve also got plenty of blog entries to keep you entertained as well:

The Cracker Barrel Conundrum still makes me shake my head sometimes, and you can read why out at

The Lazy Job Seeker is certainly someone you don’t want to be, and you can find out what to avoid at

The Recruiter Strikes Back III (yes, there have been multiple times recruiters tell you what’s up in the market) is out at

And, of course, there’s the usual round of discussions and jobs in our LinkedIn group.

To recap:
