A few weeks ago, Sandra Ordonez published this piece on the PBS MediaShift blog about how to get programmers to stop hating you: http://www.pbs.org/mediashift/2012/03/7-ways-to-get-programmers-to-stop-hating-you073.html

I was inspired to write a response, and they were kind enough to publish it! Read "7 Ways To Be The Programmer No One Hates." http://www.pbs.org/mediashift/2012/04/7-ways-to-be-the-programmer-no-one-hates107.html

Thanks, +Dan Gravell, and that's a very good point. All of the tips in my post won't get you very far if you're not actually doing quality work - just being a friendly person and a good communicator is definitely not enough.

Thanks to +John Argentiero's songwriting (and video editing chops), the world can now know me as the sweatpants-wearing couch potato that I really am. My Country Tis of Me - Das Binky

Hey friends. Know anyone looking for NYC apartments? PLEASE help us rent our 2BR/2BA Brooklyn apartment so we don't lose our security deposit!

Introduction
Hi, I'm Jordan.  I'm an experienced technical strategist, technical project manager, and content management expert with a passion for music, politics, and improvisation.  I write a blog about music and technology called Wired For Music.

I'm also an actor, musician, and improviser.

I recently started a new business:  THINK IMPROV, which helps people from all walks of life apply the concepts of improv comedy to unleash their full potential.  Learn more at http://thinkimprov.com/
