The Attic: End User Computing

The Attic is a podcast hosted by IGEL CEO Jed Ayres interviewing tech entrepreneurs, executives and thought leaders, especially in the world of end user computing [ EUC]. They share the stories of how they got their start in tech, built successful companies and what they learned along the way. We discuss their views on breaking trends such as the intelligent edge, cloud computing, VDI, DaaS, and so much more. Why The Attic? It was in the attic in Bremen, Germany, where IGEL Technology got its start 20 years ago. And a whole host of famous tech companies started in humble places, like attics and garages. With Facebook, it was a dorm room, HP and Amazon started in a garage. And the magic happens each episode of The Attic, so please tune in!

    Hosted by Laura Beil (Dr. Death, Bad Batch), Sympathy Pains is a six-part series from Neon Hum Media and iHeartRadio. For 20 years, Sarah Delashmit told people around her that she had cancer, muscular dystrophy, and other illnesses. She used a wheelchair and posted selfies from a hospital bed. She told friends and coworkers she was trapped in abusive relationships, or that she was the mother of children who had died. It was all a con.
