Introduction to Cutting Edge Computing
I wanted a blog, and here it is. Well, a lot of it isn’t really terribly cutting edge, but the topics are of interest to me, and I hope to many of you. I have a lot of opinions, most of which have to deal with computers and technology, and for the first time in my life have some time to devote to expressing them. Because I sneeze in about a thousand words, I’m hoping to produce several substantive posts a week that provide the state of my thinking on various parts of the computer industry.
You can find out something about me at http://pvarhol.wordpress.com/about/. It’s an I-love-me page, and I’m a bit embarrassed about it, but it’s probably necessary to promote myself in such inflated ways.
I didn’t want to write a technology news blog. I’m not a reporter (I’m barely a journalist), and don’t know how to break stories. Instead, I try to dig under the news part of recent and relevant stories to bring some insight or perspective. I hope I’m up to it.
Why should you read Cutting Edge Computing?
1. I’ll have fresh content several times a week.
2. I’m fairly literate, reasonably intelligent, and if all else fails, entertaining in my delusions.
3. I’d like to think I have a pretty down-to-earth take on some of the advances and events in certain areas of technology.
I also decided to blog for commercial value (warning: advertisement coming). After years of working for The Man, I’ve struck out on my own as Technology Strategy Research, LLC. I help technology companies identify their audience, and plan and conduct outreach activities to that audience in order to create awareness and enthusiasm. I do so through technical marketing products, blogs, webcasts, screencasts, and live presentations.
