Life After CIO

For 21 years, I've been involved with CIO Magazine - for the past 13 as editor in chief. Now that I'm independent, it's time to start my own blog. I can't believe it's taken me this long, but I guess my identity was so tied up with CIO that it just never seemed right. That and the fact that I was already working a gazillion hours a day.

Initially this will be a site to anchor my online presence, provide info about what I'm doing, and share bits of conversations and insights from the interesting people I talk to every day. Eventually, who knows?

I'm going to spend the rest of this week learning about Word Press and formatting and configuring the site. I'll also be looking at lots of other people's sites (today's favorite is Chris Brogan's ). Let me know what you like too.

I'm really excited about this -- looking forward to doing more than managing things for a change. Jazzed to be in learning mode again. (I plan to take some online classes and maybe a photography course while I'm on "sabbatical.")

I'm also doing some speaking and consulting - I'll be writing some about that too.
