But as I’m trying to decide what to do first, I thought I’d put up a simple poll and asked » read more.

I’m excited about the promise of the year though and I’ve got a few things that I’m looking forward to. We are at an interesting juncture in technology where truly the only limits are our imagination. I look at movies like » read more.
I love having a camera on my phone. I’ve had the privilege of playing more golf this week than I did all of last year and on better courses than I’ve ever played in my life.

I ran across this article on ZDNet (Wanted: ROI for internal app development) that really worried me. My friends at PreEmptive Solutions ran a survey across a wide number of developers that included people from 21 different industry segments in 33 countries asking about how the company measure the ROI of an application that they are building.
