I wanted to write a Light Reading news article (my first for about 10 years) to celebrate my first day being back at the helm of the new Light Reading, but when I had a sniff around for something to cover, I realized all the good stories had already been taken.

Dan Jones already covered the frankly hilarious LG phone giveaway/spear-chucking impalathon in Korea yesterday. Over on Internet Evolution, Mitch Wagner was all over the Hitler Lovers group on LinkedIn and his problems with the same network's pole dancers (best second-day lede evahhhhh, Mitch).

Which leaves me with some slim pickings. But I did finally find something newsworthy. To whit: the epic similarity between our own Dan Jones and the Internet's Grumpy Cat.

I know. Amazing, right?

It's good to be home.

— Stephen Saunders, founder, Light Reading

Congratulations!
Congratulations on the new Light Reading. 

Sorry I didn't comment here earlier. I was studying for my pole dancing final exam.

Clarification
Which one's Grumpy and which one is Dan? I certainly could not tell.

Re: Mood swing
Pensive, grumpy, whatever, I'm just glad I've kept up with my nose hair plucking regime.

Le Maistre still hasn't recovered from his reputation as a suspect in the death of his family's hamster.

Dan's looking more pensive here than grumpy. But point taken. And thanks for sticking Disqus in the bin, where it belongs.

Re: Just in case
Cracking article, Steve.  Nice to see a return to primo content.  What's up next, the "Ray Le Maistre is actually Ray Winstone" rumor?  Or vice versa.  Welcome back.

Should you ever encounter Dan Jones and Grumpy Cat at the same party:

 

Dan is much more capable of pulling off a brown polyester blazer, but Grumpy Cat has slightly better diction.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
