Musings of an IT guy




First post of many to come... I'll try to keep this one short and just share what this blog will be about.

We'll talk about both the business and the technical side of IT, focusing mainly on systems. All issues, observations, quirks, musings and opinions that will be described in this blog come from my everyday experiences working in the field... and there's a lot of them to talk about!


On the technical side I would like to engage more professionals such as myself in some form of dialogue regarding the challenges we face and the ways we overcome them. Knowledge is power but there's no point keeping the knowledge to ourselves. Introversion will eventually result in stagnancy and while you sit crowning in your self-proclaimed glory the world casually passes you by! Having contributed in blogs and newsgroups for many years I have seen with my own eyes how sharing knowledge not only doesn't deprive one of any perceived advantages, it actually enriches the knowledge one had, and makes some friends along the way. With the wealth of knowledge online, anyone can do anything. So it's not about what you do, it's about how you do it. Good things come to those who wait, but more come to those who share!

Now feels like a good time for a disclaimer: No, I'm not the all-knowing, lightbulb-bearing grand-guru of IT. I know there are many people out there with far greater knowledge and experience than my own, running their own blogs and helping people through newsgroups. But this is not a contest and that is not the point. The strife is its own reward. This blog is part of my own growth process and being a professional for 12 years I've postponed it until I was vaguely certain I'd actually have something mildly interesting to write about.

There are also several other subjects on my mind like the business process and the ways it's influencing the technical process, the comradery in IT - or lack thereof, trends, pittfalls and many more... we'll take it one post at a time and see how it goes.

All comments, opinions, feedback, ideas are welcome.

Yours,

the IT guy.
