About Jack Gudenkauf (JackG) WebLog


When I decided to try this blogging thing years ago, I was looking for a theme, a subject, something with continuity. I first started with “Smart Client” as I believe this experience (Occasionally Connected) is the right experience that bridges the local resources of a PC with the power of connectivity (Intranet and Internet).<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
Then I wrote about everything .Net. I wrote about .Net framework/CLR releases, Tools, Extensibility, Add-in’s, Versioning, etc.. <o:p></o:p>

So now I have finally realized what my blog is really about.<o:p></o:p>


My blog is about my career and life’s journey. I guess in some respects it is a journal or diary of sorts. I often wondered why anyone would care what I’m doing or have done, but I think there is value in sharing ones experiences so that others may (?) benefit. I hope you find value in my sharing.
