Is there an "IT FOR DUMMIES"?

By guanacay37 ·
I am a controller in a small firm (100 bodies) and am in charge of our techie issues. I try to keep up with Circuits in the N Y Times and Infoworld but I sometimes do not have a frame of reference for the items being discussed. Most of the magazines are simply ad compilations. Is there a good source besides here to grasp rudimentary techie concepts? I had to buy a buddy lunch to define SQL and it was really GUI. Any thoughts> Thanks!

Good things come in small packages and short answers. I could spend DAYS at WHATIS.com and the other site was very good as well. We are working on upgrading our entire system and I actually understood what the techies were saying and explainedit to our 22 year old fresh out of NYU Business hotshot. Thanks!

I've been there.
If you are looking for the "Dummies" series go to www.dummies.com They have good books in plain english dealing with small business networks, pc computing and the likes.
Another GREAT reference to have laying around your office is Newton's Telecom Dictionary. This book has saved me from looking like an idiot many times. It has more definitions and acronym explanations than any other compiled work out there.
