My interest is focused on helping business truly utilize technology to make themselves better, more efficient, and more profitable. That was technology's original promise. I believe that it is still the holy grail for businesses. Based on that basic premise I examine technologies that I deal with or find that really have promise to make businesses better. That may include social media, mobile technology, cloud computing, software development, or any of a myriad of other possible topics.
