Joining the conversation

May 6th, 2006 · 1 Comment

Today I join the conversation.  Thanks to Robert Scoble and Shel Israel for Naked Conversations; I only got through about 50 pages before I said “alright already, I get it, I’m in.”  (Not to worry, Robert — I’ll finish it….)

Thanks all the more to fellow Digipede bloggers Robert W. Anderson, Dan Ciruli, and Kim Greenlee, whose fine example I hope to follow. 

I am the president, CEO, and occassional coffee boy at Digipede Technologies, a grid computing software company in Oakland, California.  I’m also plenty of other things — energy nerd, recovering consultant, opinionated audiophile, father of a teenage girl and twin 10-year-old boys, husband of a noted health policy wonk, and so on.  While you may read my official disclaimer, the basics are familiar — I’m me, I speak here as me, and I represent myself, not my company, family, friends, or anybody else.

By blogging, I hope to listen more than I speak, to share what I already know and what I learn, to post regularly, to blog smart, and to draw on the collective wisdom of the marketplace.  But I wouldn’t count on it — I’m likely to end up saying the first thing that comes into my head.  We’ll see.

    John, Welcome to the conversation! I think you will be amazed at how effective blogging can be in getting your message out to those that matter. Dan has done a nice job with his blog getting the Digipede story out there. I look forward to hearing your perspective.
