    Architect OPML

    I finally updated my Architecture Strategy and Evangelist Blogs OPML file . For single updates, DasBlog's web interface is fine, but for doing a slew of updates it blows. I guess that's why my blogrolls are so out of date. What I really want is an InfoPath...

    All it takes is one bad trip to remind me why I took a job that only requires a handful of trips a year. Pat mentioned that this is the week of our big annual internal training event in Atlanta. We had a two day pre-training event for all our field architects...

    Pat Sings To Mr. CIO Guy

    In addition to being a history buff and architecture expert, Pat likes to sing - typically parody songs of his own creation. He's written many, but we actually broke down and got a license for Don McLean's classic " American Pie ". Pat performed his version...
