I am writing these words on Thursday, April 22, 2010, which in the United States is officially “Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work” day.  My daughter, obviously looking for a way to avoid school, came down the stairs this morning and asked: “Dad, what do you actually do at work?”

I proudly replied: “I am the Director of Information Technology.”

“Oh.  So you just sit around all day…” she said with palpable disappointment.

Well, yeah.  All the opinions expressed here are solely my own, and not those of the corporation that pays me to sit around all day.


As of this writing and for better or worse, I own stock in several technology companies, including Apple, Cisco, Google, Microsoft, and VMware.  If I happen to own stock in other companies that I write about, I will disclose that at time of posting.

On My Music Thing, I have affiliate relationthips with Apple, Amazon, Google, and Microsoft.
