re: Slideshow: Gadget Madness at CES 2013 Most misleading headline I've seen in a while. -áThis slideshow is just a bunch of people at CES -- nothing interesting or worthwhile whatsoever! -áDid LR actually go to CES, or just grab a collection of stock photos? -áLight Reading has really gone downhill since the old days.

re: Slideshow: Gadget Madness at CES 2013 Thanks Phil. The "monumental" platform was not my idea; I quoted Ray. As usual, I am with you in my heart & in my mind as you struggle to give your readers their good old LR back...

re: Slideshow: Gadget Madness at CES 2013 First of all, the platform is not new, per se. We've done the virtual equivalent of moving into our Mom's basement, so we're having to get used to the low ceilings and we're still figuring out where to put the furniture.
The good news is that my editors and I were already talking over ways to share more images more quickly even before this platform migration. So now that we know what this looks like using the default templates, we can get to work and start improving things a little bit at time.-áThanks, as always, for the commentary.-á

re: Slideshow: Gadget Madness at CES 2013 More comments on the monumental new platform: The slideshows are even harder to navigate since the links are only beneath the pic (no more prev/next atop). It was annoying before (you had to scroll to see the pic -- top half of the screen were ads), now it's even worse. Suggestion 1: remove the ads. Suggestion 2: make pics floating. Suggestion 3: make them clickable.
Light Reading is spending much of this year digging into the details of how automation technology will impact the comms market, but let's take a moment to also look at how automation is set to overturn the current world order by the middle of the century.
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.
