speaking_in_tech Greg Knieriemen podcast enterprise

It's another episode of El Reg's weekly enterprise tech podcast, hosted by Ed Saipetch, Greg Knieriemen and Sarah Vela. Do only white guys wear Google Glass? Just what did Sarah get up to at school with Reid Hoffman? And what the hell kind of weirdo endorses people for "social media" on LinkedIn?

Find the answers to all of these posers and more in this week's instalment, where Ed is AWOL doing "important things" on the West Coast, allowing the walking wounded to hold the fort (Sarah has had a tooth drilled and Greg's suffering from an old shoulder injury). Don't forget, you can download the podcast, or, better yet, subscribe via iTunes, Google or Stitcher, so you get your weekly dose of SiT automatically.
