Techcafeteria’s Week Of Added Content

As promised, I added about 40 of my guest posts here from the NTEN, Idealware, Earthjustice and LSC blogs. I also completely redid my categories and retagged every item, which is something I’d never done properly, so that, if you visit the blog, you can use the new sidebar category and tag cloud displays to find content by topic. Included is my “Recommended Posts” category, which includes the posts that I think are among the best and the most valuable of what I’ve written. These are mostly nptech-related, with a few of the personal posts thrown in, along with some humor. The newly-added content that is… Read More »Techcafeteria’s Week Of Added Content

Incoming Content – Apologies In Advance!

 RSS subscribers to this blog should take note that I’m apt to flood your feeds this weekend. Over the past few weeks, I’ve gathered 35 to 40 posts that  I’ve written for other blogs  that I’m adding here.  These are primarily posts that I wrote for the NTEN, Idealware, Earthjustice and Legal Services  Corporation blogs, but neglected to cross-post here at the  time. The publish dates run from mid 2006 to a few months ago. I’m also seeking  permission to republish some of my larger articles that are out there, so you’ll be seeing, at  least, my guide on “Architecting Systems to Support  Outcomes Management”,… Read More »Incoming Content – Apologies In Advance!

Looking For A New Job

Friday is my last day at Earthjustice, coinciding almost exactly with my first day at the job five years ago. Some of you might ask why I would leave one of the best orgs on earth, and I’ll discuss that below. But, right up front, I want to tell you about the two things I’m looking for and ask you to be on the lookout for me.

Avalanche!

I took a trip up to Juneau, Alaska last week (April 16th, 2008). Didn’t get too many pictures, but the ones I did included an avalanche in motion – we had a foot of snow while I was there (very late in the season). So, here’s a good test of WordPress 2.5’s new Gallery feature. These shots were taken while driving around Juneau checking out potential office spaces for the Earthjustice office to relocate to during a potential renovation. The avalanche starts in the second row, coming down the mountain and then billowing up in a gray cloud over the building on the right. The… Read More »Avalanche!

About the new job

So, I think it’s safe to let everyone know that I start a new gig as IT Director at Earthjustice this month. For those of you who don’t know, Earthjustice is a law firm dedicated to protecting natural resources and the environment. Originally founded as the legal arm of the Sierra Club, they now do advocacy and litigation in defense of the planet. They are an international firm with the awesome tagline “because the earth needs a good lawyer”. My role there is a strategic one — in addition to managing the IT Department, I’ll be looking at ways that we can decentralize the technology… Read More »About the new job
