When you need to learn about learning there are lots of folks you can call. One of the best and most entertaining, though, is Elliott Masie, a consultant and Broadway producer. Today (Tuesday) at 3pm EDT I've got George Colombo on Interop Radio to interview Elliot about how to learn, and how to help others learn. It's a great interview and the online discussion should be great. I hope you can join us!
Everyone wants a well-educated, successful workforce but just how do you get one? And what, precisely, do you think you can do with it? To answer those and other questions, George Colombo had a conversation with Elliott Masie, head of The MASIE Center, a Saratoga Springs, NY think tank focused on how organizations can support learning and knowledge within the workforce.

Tomorrow at 1:00 PM EDT I'll be hosting Dark Reading Radio with two interviews I taped at Black Hat 2014. First, it's Chris Bell of Securonix and Chris Inglis, former deputy director of the NSA. Next, I have Ron Plesco, National Lead for KPMG LLP’s Cyber Investigations, Intelligence and Analytics services and former president and CEO of the National Cyber and Forensics Training Alliance. These are great interviews if you care about computer security and privacy issues -- I'd love to have your voice in the discussion around the episode!
