Turley will be working with OpenSystems Media moderating embedded webcasts and virtual events. Turley will be the Embedded Moderator for Embedded Computing Design magazine.

OSM is one of the largest providers of editor-moderated webcasts in the embedded space. OSM, the leading producer of embedded E-casts in the industry, continues to be successful with their webcasts because they provide the right tools, leading editorial staff, and a robust streaming architecture, which delivers a seamless experience for online attendees.
