I have been working in, on, around, or in the depths of computer networks professionally for over 20 years. Before that I was programming, hacking, and just generally messing about with computers, modems, bulletin boards, and networks since I got my first computer at age eight: an Apple IIc with all the accoutrements. In that time I have managed to break a good many things, fix many other things, and have seen a lot of the good, bad, and just plain odd underbellies of the computer world. As such, writing about some of it seems to make a certain level of sense.
I spend most of my time these days in a strategy role, translating between the business needs of my company and the incredible IT Team I manage. I'm an avid watcher of industry trends and a returning (read: old) student of Computer Science and Business at the University of Massachusetts Lowell. In what little spare time I have, I'm interested in sailing, general aviation, wood working, photography, theoretical physics, my family, and anything else that I find to be fun at the time.
I can be found online in a variety of places, scribbling whatever nonsense comes to mind, but the two most likely places are my personal blog and Twitter:http://blog.packetqueue.net @SomeClown
