Well I’ve completed my first week in Arizona and it’s been interesting. I first got out here on Friday the 18th of September and spent the weekend visiting with Dan and his family. I’ve known Dan ever since 1997 when we both served upon the USS Belleau Wood (LHA-3) in the IT department. I wasn’t called that at the time, it was called ADP or Automated Data Processing. But that’s another story. I also met up with Marc on Saturday (19th) and we proceeded to the building that I would be working in to check out my area where I’d be working. Marc is another buddy I too worked with on the USS Belleau Wood (LHA-3). I am now working in a cube-farm and Marc is my team lead but that’s about all I can say about that.
I’m over at my in-laws right now, getting ready to eat dinner. I’m kinda in the way since I’m setup on the dinner table, using Jenny’s laptop. My son just dumped a small box of marbles all over the floor and my daughter decided to be nice and help him out. I’m going to start using WordPress as my drug of choice to keep track of what’s going on in my life. I liked Concrete5 for a while, but there’s too much setup. I think C5 is good for business sites that are a little more static than what I plan for my site here. I’m just getting into the blogging world so I have a lot to post and a lot to learn.
I kind of got interested in doing this since I went to a business meeting last week where Web 2.0 or Enterprise 2.0 was described. I can see a lot of good qualities that can come out of this technology, but I have to be social enough to publish my thoughts here. I will post more as time comes, but I’m still kind of poking around.
