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.
