It seems more and more of TMO’s content is being disseminated as audio, which leaves it unavailable for some of us. Audio takes longer to absorb (listen to) than print, and some of us don’t have that time or capability.

I really wanted to know about the USB risk, but now that’s not possible from TMO. So I must go to someone else’s web site.


The content provided on this podcast is excellent and those hosting provide a wealth of knowledge. I have struggled to listen since discovering this podcast, however, because of the ridiculous silliness encouraged by the host, especially 100% of the time by contributor, Kelly Gulmont. With so few women representing females in tech, it is a terrible shame and waste of talent to highlight the manufactured giggles and laugh track from this respected writer. Perhaps you have some listeners who enjoy this female stereotype, but please, for the majority of women struggling to advance technology professions, please Kelly, move on from the little girl/sex kitten routine and share your tech insights, observations, and general wealth of intellect with us!
