Just Joking: An Irreverent Look At Tech News

Don't let anyone tell you IT isn't funny. Check out these videos from Valley View and InformationWeek 500.

Sometimes we take ourselves too seriously in this profession ... after all, it's technology. It's not at all funny. Or is it? Maybe not, but the people and the companies are pretty funny, or at least deserve to be made fun of. Every year at the InformationWeek 500, we kick off the awards ceremony with a fun look back at the year in technology news.

Also, each month, we do the same to kick off our Valley View live Web TV program (the next show is October 24 at 11 a.m. PT). The two video clips below are from the InformationWeek 500 event, and from the September 26 Valley View.

Remember folks: we kid because we love (or so I tell myself).
