I’ve been fooling with computers since I was 14.
I’ve had the opportunity to be a software developer, user interface designer, architecture researcher, operations manager, and finally, a CIO. I started in computing when mainframes ruled the earth. Now my phone has more native power. I saw the birth of all the stuff we take for granted: PCs, networks, email, the web, everything. I’ve never lost my utter fascination with all this technology and how it can be made to do anything if you try hard enough.
Along the way I learned more about business and people than I ever expected to. As a CIO, I get the opportunity to see what people do, figure out ways to help them, and deliver tools that make things better. What could be better?
I like to share what I’ve learned. That’s why I started this blog. I want to talk about being a CIO, about solving problems, about helping people, about making a difference. I also like to share lots of things that I think are worth noting, even if they don’t directly pertain to being a CIO or using computers.
I appreciate everyone who reads this. I hope you get something out of it; if so, I’ve succeeded.
