I'm writing this while listening to my team meeting for my job. I am an analyst with an IT industry research and advisory firm. I help companies save millions of dollars in software investments, better allocate their resources, and improve the quality of their applications. This job allows me to exercise the right side of my brain - thinking through big problems, forecast trends in the industry, write research, speak at conferences etc. If you're not in IT or software, what I do doesn't make a lot sense to many people, but if you're in IT, you know that working with companies like mine can help you save your job.
The left side of my brain is what I bring to this blog; my recipes, my thoughts on wine, life and politics. If there are a few folks who get something from this, that makes me happy.
