Shedding Light on Heavy Reading

The official announcement Monday of the rebirth of Light Reading brought cause for celebration, huzzahs heard in numerous time zones, and… a touching bit of concern.

The concern came from careful readers who scoured the press release and wondered, "What about Heavy Reading?" Emails poured in from around the world (ok, we got a few) asking if Heavy Reading was part of the buyout.

The answer is simple and clear: Heavy Reading most certainly is part of the Light Reading empire. In fact, in many ways, it's at the beating heart of the new operation and inarguably an indispensable part of our newly reborn company.

Heavy Reading analysts are at the core of much of what Light Reading, as a company, does: Live events, webinars, pub crawls, you name it. Our research not only sets much of Light Reading's agenda but also informs the strategies and decisions taken by our many loyal clients.

Sure, we can take ourselves seriously at time -- after all, we are huffy-puffy important analyst types (and we have coffee mugs to prove it). But we're proud of our role as Light Reading's serious, mostly sober (slightly) younger sibling, and we're thrilled to be part of the new Light Reading.

— Dennis Mendyk, Vice President of Research, Heavy Reading

I'm with you onthat, Dan. Love the new mugs. Everything tastes better in them, including good old chocolate milk.

Re: Mostly sober?
That's right -- we can finally share our coffee mugs we've been drinking from in secret all month. Tea just somehow tastes better from it:

Mostly sober?
Well, that's a new approach.

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.
