Welcome to my first attempt at blogging.   I hope to make it fun, informative and someplace you think about returning to and I encourage you to leave comments, suggestions and general thoughts.  I can ramble on and on with the best of them – especially about things that excite me.  But hey,  isn’t that what this is all about?  Sharing what your excited about and hoping others enjoy, laugh at, can re-use or simply ponder.

I plan to use this blog as a place to post my learnings and observations as I go through a new phase of my IT career.  I say new, because I have recently (okay it was a year ago) moved into the Technology Operations organization at AOL.  I’ve noticed there is a lot to learn and things are a bit different than the Engineering Quality Assurance, Development and Product support side of the house. Different in many ways, however there are also many similar aspects of this organization that I hope to elaborate on in this post.

Sit back, relax and enjoy!
