It's time for Light Reading's annual cruise down memory lane to visit of the World Wide Web of yore. You know, when a dial-up modem and an introductory CD packed with the promise of 100 hours of free Internet access served as our window to digital delights. Or perhaps you went with another ISP of the day, and had the easy-to-remember email address of XUNJ9LWS@prodigy.net.

No matter from whence you came, delightful historic artifacts await you, as we have once again tapped the Internet Archive WayBackMachine to help take us on this year's nostalgic trip, which includes some Web shots of years gone by from Comcast Corp. (Nasdaq: CMCSA, CMCSK), Sprint Corp. (NYSE: S), Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE: VZ), Dish Network LLC (Nasdaq: DISH), Boxee and a few others.

Make Light Reading more prominent and get an archive of classic threads.  You can go back and get a chuckle from them.


Now I am going out on a limb and posting this (note if you are easily or even not so easily offended you are warned not to click).

This is an archive of the best threads from my old Everquest server which merged out of existence several years ago.  I "knew" many of the partipants quite well.  For example, I was guilded with the person Jennafae who started Svarien thread.  This was about aldutery and nude photos (which are long torn down off the net).

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.
