Episode 3

Certifications, Podcast, Security, SPAM April 18th, 2007

Recorded: April 15, 2007
Your Hosts: Keith Albright and Rich Niemeier
Show Length: 1:37:11

Rich and I discuss whether IT Industry certifications matter anymore. We discuss our own personal experiences in obtaining our own certifications as well as how we viewed them when hiring employees and vendors. Throw in a couple of news items and our website picks and you’ve got yourself a podcast. I apologize if the volume is a little low on this recording. I had planned to put a new PC (by new, I mean a used PIII I bought at a computer show) in place for the recording and load Ubuntu on the old laptop I’ve been using, but the sound card in the new PC was sounding awful. So, I put the old laptop back into the mix….and I couldn’t get Rich’s volume up through the Griffin iMic. (Luckily I hadn’t started loading Ubuntu). I’m working on the setup now and hope to have it golden by our first anniversary show.
Thanks everyone.
