We've started a new initiative we are calling CASTLE Conversations: interviews with interesting people about technology and/or leadership issues. In some ways it will be very similar to the awesome work that Steve Hargadon is doing (and that others are doing). However, we're mostly going to interview people that have expertise and are doing interesting things but may not have much national visibility.

Our first interview was with Dr. Jan Witthuhn, the Superintendent of the Mounds View Public Schools here in Minnesota. Jan is highly-regarded for her data-driven decision-making expertise. Give us some feedback and let us know what you think. We're also taking nominations for interviewees: if you know someone local and interesting that you think we should interview, get in touch!

Happy listening!
