Who am I?
My name is Harry. I work on computer systems for a company in the entertainment industry. I have worked with a lot of technology in my time there. I have managed and participated in many projects. Some of the highlights of my career are a virtualization/storage project, an XP migration, several MS Office migrations, a datacenter move, and a company-wide IM/Collaboration project. Some of the most exciting projects that I am currently working on are VDI/Client Consolidation, a new SAN/VMware installation, and a refresh of IT operations.
What am I doing here?
I am a technology enthusiast, aka a geek. I have been using computers regularly since my parents bought a Packard-Bell around 1989. In those days I used the computer to type in “dir” commands because I knew I would get a response other than “Syntax Error.” My interest and skills have grown since then. I now work for a well known company in NYC. My goal is to play a leadership role in the tech industry. I don’t know if that will happen as a player in a tech company, leading a tech community project, working for a non-tech company, and/or blogging; but I believe that I have something to contribute to this industry.
Why did I start this blog?
I started this blog as a place to share my knowledge and ideas, as well as a place to learn from my peers. I have so much information bouncing around in my head that I feel is unique or difficult to find. I have already noticed that my posts have helped and informed people. There is nothing that I value more on this blog than my beloved reader. I cannot begin to tell you how much I appreciate the time you spend here. So if you see anything incorrect or have any ideas to make this place better, let me know.
OK geekboy, what else should I know?
I have one brother and one sister. I am married and have a baby girl. My wife is not an IT gal. She tolerates my geekdom except for when I wear too many IT t-shirts. I have a coworker who calls me an “it guy.” She laughed pretty hard when I told her that I had a blog by the name of HarryITguy.
Some of my interests other than technology are music, travel, sports (playing and watching), food, video games, politics, and living life.
Welcome! Enjoy your stay!
