Hour 1: Digital Divas, Mr. Fixit and Windows 10 Update



Kathleen Norton Schock brought us up to date with her blossoming podcast Diva Tech Talk which is a specialized communication channel highlighting women doing wonderful things in the technology arena by creating podcasts from interviews with successful female individuals in the field and covering various technology events.  It was created to inform and inspire women of all ages to succeedin professional and life missions that are technology-driven.





Kathleen also filled us in on events for the Michigan Council of Women in Technology which included a special gathering of Detroit girls on Girls Get IT Day.  Check out their calendar for other upcoming events.

MCWT Mission Statement: Every day we work toward our mission to inspire and grow women in technology. A diverse IT workforce is a vital part of Michigan’s transformation and we strive to engage and retain female professionals here.


In our network, you’ll meet executives, students, business owners, entrepreneurs and others dedicated to a thriving technology community. Through mentoring, leadership development, networking, and technology experiences for all career cycles—from youth summer camps, to college and graduate school scholarships, to professional networking events, and more—we are inspiring and nurturing technologically oriented women

What began in 2000 as a career-focused group for women in the field has since evolved into a multi-faceted philanthropic organization committed to engaging current and future technology leaders.

Ed Rudel has been our Mr. Fixit for many years with his Ed’s Excellent Advice column on our home page. Truth be told, most of our tech team here at the Internet Advisor have been Mr. Fixits in one realm or another.  It is kind of a common tinering mindset that is part of working with digital things, whether devices or code.  So Ed to some time to talk about a new kit of drill bits that match the myriad screwheads you are likely to encounter when working on a computer or other device. They are iFixit’s new toolkits.

Justin Coffey for the save!  Justin, Practice Manager at NuSoft Solutions, has been our go-to man for explanations of changes and features coming to Microsoft and in particular to Windows 10!  That is because as of Monday, April 30 Microsoft is beginning the roll out of a big update package.  It is rather doubtful that the common, ordinary user like you and I will receive it anytime soon, Justin helped us get some idea of the size and scope of the big upgrade.
