Putting the know in technology
Let me tell you one of the reasons I love my job. I’ve always been the kind of guy who likes to know about what is happening slightly before everyone else does – be that an indie band before they make it big, a breaking news story or the latest technological gadget or software. I am very proud that I was in an emo band in 1998, before many people even knew what that meant, and that I started my first blog in 2000. So the fact that I’m getting paid to learn about things like mobile memes, moblogging, CAPTCHA advertising, Slideshare, Pogo and other such innovations fits quite well with my interests and proclivities. And, it makes me feel pretty cool.
