You probably noticed we changed the format of Technically Speaking. The new one-column format is in response to feedback from readers. This format should make it easier to read and print the newsletter. Hopefully you have not noticed any change in the quality of the content.  Each month, we strive to bring you useful information and our focus on highquality content will never change. We will continue fine tuning the format over the next few months and each small change should make the newsletter more readable. Please let us know what you think of the new style and also, please continue sending your submissions to Sincerely, Michael Carr [post_title] => Technically Speaking, June 2014 [post_excerpt] => [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => closed [ping_status] => closed [post_password] => [post_name] => technically-speaking-june-2014 [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2020-08-03 11:31:24 [post_modified_gmt] => 2020-08-03 15:31:24 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => technically_speaking [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [meta_id] => 373719 [post_id] => 44891 [meta_key] => newsletter_content_2_contributor [meta_value] => a:1:{i:0;s:5:"40543";} ) )
