Finally, I get a Blog happening!

Well, here it is folks, the first blog by the outspoken Wookie. I wonder if George Lucas is going to try and shut me down now? Just because he based Chewy on a picture of me he'd seen... :)

Anyway, after a long time spent wondering if I would ever get a blog online, I suppose that now, January 2005, is as good a time as any. I can't say that this will be a regularly updated blog (at least maybe not to start with) but I will update it when I feel the urge.

Those of you who know me, and all who will get to know me through this blog and my websites -,, and - will know that I'm more than willing to speak out when I see something that's, well, let me just say "not right". I'm also willing to speak up when I see something that's well done. Unfortunately, many years in the IT industry has made it more easy for me to see the bad side of things. However, sometimes its a side that others don't quite see until it is brought to their attention.

So, with that being said, I'm just going to plunge headfirst into this thing and see where it takes us. I hope - for all of us - that it provides an alternative viewpoint to the IT industry that opens our minds a little more. I also hope we learn something from our visits here.
