With my love for writing and technology, it was inevitable that I would start a blog. To some people, blogs are old news and for others they are asking, "a what?" Nevertheless, I'm looking forward to jumping into the blogosphere and adding what I see as a missing component to all the conversations about web sites: how to make sure the business is driving technology decisions and not the technology driving the business.
My passion for technology started before the words "World Wide Web" and "the Internet" were everyday vocabulary words. My first experience with the Internet was writing e-mail in college on the VAX 11/780 mainframe with dumb terminals that we used to communicate with professors and classmates on assignments. Those days seem like a long time ago!
One of my first work study jobs was as a user assistant. I loved helping my fellow students realize that "all this computer stuff" wasn't really that hard. I also decided almost immediately as a freshman that I would major in Computer Science. A passion was born.
