Mentoring

Great post by my friend, +Brent Hutfless,  about a recent loss and the life lessons learned from it.  
Like many people who have been in the workplace for a number of years, I have had my share of mentors. Some were incredible teachers who sought to pass on their knowledge and provide a good experience, but some very important lessons came from those who never intended to take on that mantle. Over th...

Android is everywhere. In your pocket. On your wrist. Occasionally (and unfortunately) on your face. In your living room. Even in your kitchen. And now Android is in your car. In 2014 Google announced Android Auto. And in 2015 it's become a reality. Android Auto is devilishly simple. You plug your phone into a compatible receiver — either the infotainment system that comes with...

A Pile Up, As It Happens

This should give you some incentive to not sit in your car after being involved in a pile up on the interstate. Please forgive the portrait mode video.
The incident began about 11:22 a.m. Between 40 and 50 commercial vehicles and 20 passenger vehicles were involved, the Wyoming Highway Patrol reported. Marci Hugentobler / licensing@viralhog.c

Story
Tagline
Tech enthusiast, husband, dad, dog owner, and over-confident golfer. There, I think that about covers it.
Introduction
A technology enthusiast .... well .... that is putting it mildly. Interested in all things tech, especially mobile and cloud computing. I am the mobile solutions supervisor for a major provider of hosted Exchange and web security services.

I am actively involved in the local tech community because I believe the Gulf Coast region has a great deal of potential to become a major technology hub in the southeastern in the United States. In an effort to further this cause, I am serving as president of IT Gulf Coast, director of ITEN Wired, and on the board of Innovation Coast

When I am not being a geek, I spend my time being outdoors, camping, golfing, biking, or fishing. I am also a husband and dad who is striving to turn his family into uber geeks as well.

"It may be all right to be content with what you have; never with what you are." -- B.C. Forbes
Bragging rights
I thought I wanted to be banker when I was in high school and spent several years of my life and thousands of dollars to become one. Once I got there I realized that my passion was technology, not money. So at the ripe old age of 32, I heeded my wife's advice and spent a few more years and several more thousands of dollars to get into the IT field. It has been a great ride and I haven't regretted it, not even for a moment.
