Anyhow, the rest of TechTalk Episode 373 is worth a listen, especially if you skip over my parts. There really is a good discussion of managing security and access within educational environments vis-a-vis Internet access and trust with mobile devices.
As always, the unabridged grimoire of my podcast atrocities is laid bear here.

It's not about adding diversity for the sake of diversity, it's about subtracting homogeneity for the sake of realism.

I get frustrated with the focus on finishing novels. It's an accomplishment, to be sure, but it's the baseline. It's where the work starts.

So here's our first swipe of 2015: TechTalk Ep 371 – Prognostications and Prevarications for 2015!
My contributions include predictions about how cyberwars will escalate to open combat this year, and a quiz about the intersection of US Congressmen and the NASA astronaut corps. It's more nerdy than it sounds. Give a listen.
And if this short stint doesn't satisfy you, my (admittedly incomplete) history of podcast appearances is available here.
