360 IT Advice
I’m now listed as one of the “Experts” over at the Microsoft-sponsored 360 IT Advice site, which is pretty cool. The basic idea is that people can ask their IT questions, and get answers from a panel of experts. Even though it’s sponsored by Microsoft, much of the advice covers non-Microsoft topics.
Anyway, here’s a couple topics submitted by my friends, and if you’ve got your own IT challenge, you can submit it to get feedback from the panel.
- Keeping our laptops patched, updated, and secure?
- Sharing documents with customers securely?
