    IT in The D, Episode 30.

    We had Hajj Flemings as our in-studio guest to talk about his areas of expertise like branding, social media personas, and everything else he's got going on these days. Detroit's Largest Selfie. The #DetroitWeek hashtag and activities. And a bunch more. He's a busy guy with a lot of irons in the fire, and it was great to sit down and chat with him about it all.
    That just scratches the surface though, because oh, did we have some fun with the latest news and events...

    ep30We talked about the controversy surrounding a new way that's being floated to finance college education, Comcast buying Time Warner, Uber's dirty little secret, the flap about Flappy Bird, why Candy Crush should be immediately uninstalled from your phone and never played again, and so, so much more.

    Want to read up a bit so that you've got context?

    Why you should immediately uninstall Candy Crush from your phones. Not because we think it's annoying, or anything like that - the people behind it suck at life and deserve to be homeless: http://www.candyswipe.com/king.html

    Is there a better way to fund college education? Like an after-the-fact payback based on percentage of income rather than crushing debt? http://www.forbes.com/sites/joshfreedman/2014/02/13/should-we-place-a-tax-on-all-college-graduates/
