First Steps

So this is the first entry of the blog, the first step.  I’ll start with a short bio/introduction, then a short description of the aims for this blog – which will evolve.

Who am I?  I promised that this would be short.  I’m a child of the 60s and compressing the last 50 years of the evolving picture of who I am at any one time into a ‘short bio’ is not going to be easy.  I am many things to many people: brother to four fellow travellers, husband to a wonderfully patient woman, father to four spectacular young men and women, passionate advocate of a better way to work, technologist, geek, nerd and lover of new gadgets and technologies, collector of productivity tools in the vague hope that I’ll find that illusive silver bullet.  That is a start, checkout my current mind map profile.


What do I want to achieve with this blog?  At this moment it time, I hope to use the blog as a discussion forum for ideas that I’ve been fermenting for many years.  Mostly these will be around my current passions, Agile, DevOps and a better way of creating value, and productivity tools, in particular mind mapping.  This will change.

Distilling the sourmash of ideas swirling around from the last 50 years into meaningful talking points is going to be a challenge.  But I’m looking forward to it.  So it’s TTFN and I’ll TTYL
