A bit about myself. I have been working in the world of technology for 25-odd years. I am a senior technologist, focused on software solutions, social networking, new/novel technologies, and innovation processes. I am a Principal Consultant with T4G Limited, specializing in Portal Technologies (including SharePoint), software/systems development, service oriented architectures, and many other things which I will probably not remember until I need to use them.
Prior to that, I was VP of Technology at Whitehill Technologies, Inc., where I spent almost 9 years helping to grow the company from a startup to one of the most successful private software companies in Canada. Prior to that I worked on internet conferencing using early VoIP, and on large military communications projects. Before even that, I worked in satellite control, and remote sensing. Going way back to university, my focus was on theoretical physics and astrophysics.
My technology interests vary (I still suffer from “shiny object syndrome”!), but right now I spend a lot of time on portal technologies, cloud-based solutions, natural user interfaces, and “big data”.
I am also a member of the IEEE/IEEE Computer Society, and of the Association for Computing Machinery.
