Welcome to the Software Process and Measurement Cast 185!

The Software Process and Measurement Cast 186 features my interview with Jo Ann Sweeney.  We discussed using social media as a tool to support communications inside and outside projects. It was great to have Jo Ann back on the Cast.

I recommend going back to SPaMCAST 138 to listen to our earlier interview after listening to this interview!
