In the words of Vince Vaughn from the movie “The Internship”, I have decided to go out there “on the line” and start a blog. This has been something I have often thought about during my many years in the IT industry, and after an excellent workshop with “Andrea Edwards – The Digital Conversationalist”, I was motivated to start this blog to share my ideas and chat about what’s important to me.
It took quite some deliberation for the blog name, throwing around more than 50 names before deciding on “Data, Tech and Beans”. Firstly, I wanted to tie the name to data, analytics, technology…….and talk about what’s new, what’s trending in the marketplace, where technology is heading, and how data is important in our day-to-day lives.
Secondly, I wanted to include conversations that I would have over a cup of coffee, including news from around the world, AFL football, wine, sports, and gadgets.
From a personal point of view, I am a passionate “Melbourne football club“ member …..but before you categorize me into a typical stereotype, I don’t own a Range Rover, nor do I go skiing on the season opening weekend. I enjoy relaxing with a beer, wine and pizza, Sci-Fi or comedy movies, most sports, and looking at the latest technology and gadgets.
thanks for reading.
