I just wanted to take a moment to introduce myself to those of you that
are not familiar with me through my writings as the author of the
Government Technology Newsletters. I am a 17 year technology
veteran (more than that if you count my tinkering before I was actually
employed as an IT professional) who started as a programmmer analyst
and worked my way up to CIO and now as a consultant. I spent 16
of those years in government IT, 5 at the executive level, so I feel
that I have a little knowledge and experience that I can draw upon as I
add to this blog and the newsletters.
My passion has been and still remains the intelligent application of
technology to solve problems. While I have always had an interest
in the technology just for technology's sake, I get a real kick out of
making technology really work
for an organization. So while you might find a strictly technical
article from me on occasion, most of what I concentrate on are the hows
and whys of technology and how best to manage it in the
organization. After all, if it isnt being managed properly,
technology is probably not doing the organization all that much good.
So if you find yourself reading this and are new to my writings,
welcome aboard. If you are an old friend, thanks for the
continued readership. In either case, I hope to continue to make
you think, inspire you to act, or in some way possible aid you as you
go about your duties in your organization.
Thanks for reading!
