Reconciling the Two Halves of My Brain....

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.

Look at you multi-tasking! ;) I'm dropping in from roll call at SITS! Have a fantastic Thursday!

It's a great balance isn't it? I love the idea of using both.

That's one of the things I love about you...that ability to multitask.

SITS is cool - and opens up a whole new group of bloggers.

Thanks for dropping by my blog and following me. I am in the IT business too. But not nearly as important as you! I know enough just to be dangerous! ;-) I work on an Air Force Base in computer support. Started out as a coordinator, then became a desk top support flunkie, and got promoted to general office flunkie! LOL Actually learning the Video Teleconferencing stuff now and other things such as Sharepoint, printers, and blackberrys.
