Sysadmins know us at our worst. They usually see us only when we’re cranky about something not working. Like Santa, they can look at their logs and know if we’ve been bad or good with company computing resources. (And some of us have been very, very bad indeed.) 
Time to break out the doughnuts and the Starbucks gift cards. Friday is System Administrator Appreciation Day, usually shortened to Sysadmin Day.

In the same way that we look at classic movies such as "An Affair to Remember" now and muse that the star-crossed lovers wouldn’t have had so many problems if they’d just had cellphones, a number of the mysteries the publishing world is currently grappling with would no longer be an issue today if "Mockingbird"’s creators had used modern document management tools.
With all the interest in "Go Set a Watchman," one thing is clear: This would all have been a lot easier if they had just used document management software.

It’s not the first time that people have been fired or lost insurance due to pictures on Facebook. What was new in this case was the government using warrants to gather information about the people from Facebook. It also used private messages, not just information available publicly.

You know, I hope G+ doesn't go away. I like it.

More to the point, it’s not likely that you’re going to be able to stop users from doing it anyway, so the best you can do is control the process to protect the company.
Never mind BYOD (Bring Your Own Device). Are you ready for BYOA (Bring Your Own Application)?

There’s more involved in keeping employees happy than following a bullet list of suggestions. What matters is to get to know your employees and find out what’s important to them.
With the improving economy providing more opportunities, employee retention is more important than ever.

Ironically, what much of this discussion boils down to is that the most important part of coding isn’t necessarily writing the program itself, but knowing how to research what code is already available that can be used or modified. 
When you start a new project, how much time do you devote to choosing the right language to use?

Somebody claiming to be from this company just came to our door, with no identifying logos or anything, and started asking about our medical conditions. Not only is this inappropriate and a violation of our privacy, it's a violation of national HIPAA regulations. I suggest you ask your salespeople to follow the law before somebody with more time on their hands than I decides to take you to court.
