Blog Improvements

November 20th, 2008

Please note that I have added several pages and links to the blog.  Now that I am blogging regularly in my professional roles I hope to translate those skills into improvements for this site as well.  Feel free to provide me with feedback.  Thanks.

This is my first attempt at blogging.  I expect I’ll post some random musings about life, leadership, learning, systems, music, and whatever else seems relevant at the moment.  Hopefully it will lead to some good dialogue and fun conversation.
