There's a lot going on behind the scenes at Light Reading at the moment, and as part of the current process of adding to our editorial/content creation team I'm glad to welcome back Sarah Reedy.
Sarah will already be well known to many Light Reading regulars for her coverage of the mobile technology sector, and in particular for her commanding, informative and often memorable video reports and Light Reedy blog. (See Do You Know DiMoWiNe?)
She returns, again with a focus on wireless services, technology and associated Service Provider Information Technology (SPIT), just as Light Reading prepares for a significant revamp that will add multimedia content, compelling and interactive new features and a contemporary design that will give readers a much greater opportunity to engage with their peers.
Please join me in welcoming Sarah back to the Light Reading family.

The 'gleaming city on a hill,' Steve Saunders calls it. But who is going to take us from today's NFV componentry to the grand future of a self-driving network? Here's a look at the vendors hoping to make it happen.
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.
