Writer/Editor at ITworld

I'm a writer and editor for ITworld.com, after having survived 17 years in the corporate wild as a software/web developer, technical lead and project manager.

In my spare time these days, when I'm not chauffeuring my daughters to and from school, lessons and Justin Bieber movies (ugh), I enjoy drawing cartoons, tweeting and taking pictures of cranes.
