My first blog. I finally got the time for it by getting laid off. OK, so what is this blog about? Since I’m a hands-on IT executive, it’s about IT, electronics, gadgets, gizmos, cell phones, laptops, my experience managing teams of IT experts and dealing with managers, staff, executives, experts, project managers and accountants. I started over 14 years ago, changing careers and turning my PC hobby into a profession and evolving from part time PC technician over a full time specialist, network engineer, network director to a Deputy CIO. It has brought me far, very far and it’s been a bittersweet experience. At best moments I thought I would never want any other job in the world. At the worst I really wanted to start driving an 18 wheeler, but more about truck driving in some other post. Welcome and I’ll build this slowly. Hello fellow techies, hello fellow managers and hello fellow employees, fellow humans, fellow fellows and fellow fellowettes.
