Back in May, I started this blog after several failed attempts using a variety of blogging engines and web sites. This marks my 100th blog post!
Granted, a lot of my posts do not contain a lot of original material. Those posts help keep my blog alive, however. If I only posted when I had something original to contribute, this blog would become just another dead blog in a long line of dead blogs. But I hope you find some value in the posts I make, original and otherwise.
Anyway, I thought I would use this particular post to publicly thank a few of the people who have helped my career, directly and indirectly. I'm intentionally not including family members (I couldn't possibly do them justice in a blog post) or anyone in my current organization (because it's review time and I don't want to sound like suck-up).
"Gratitude among friends is like credit among tradesmen: it keeps business up, and maintains commerce. And we pay not because it is just to discharge our debts, but that we might the more easily find lenders on another occasion." - François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld
