There will be no show on the 1st of January with our next show coming up on the 15th of January.

In between shows, I would like to interview some training professionals who do not get a chance to join the T is for Training crew regularly.  If you can think of some people, let me know and I will try to get an interview scheduled in our intersession.

What new technology training they expect to do in 2010?
What conference are you looking forward to attending/presenting next year?
What training you think will not be needed this coming year?

3) A Look Inside:  Just a couple of questions for each of our guests.

The 10 questions:
