Ruminations – An IT Blog

Welcome to Ruminations, an IT Blog. In Ruminations, the emphasis will be on IT strategic and conceptual issues that catch my eye. For convenience, I will also include announcements and cross links concerning speeches, papers, and columns.

This blog is not a replacement for The OpenVMS Consultant, my column on OpenVMS-related issues, formerly hosted by or my contributions to the OpenVMS Technical Journal and other publications.
