- Opinion: The unspoken truth about managing geeks – Without a doubt, one of the most observant and accurate observations on IT people I have read. Should be required reading for EVERY CEO.
"Most IT pros support an organization that is not involved with IT. The primary task of any IT group is to teach people how to work. That's may sound authoritarian, but it's not. IT's job at the most fundamental level is to build, maintain and improve frameworks within which to accomplish tasks. You may not view a Web server as a framework to accomplish tasks, but it does automate the processes of advertising, sales, informing and entertaining, all of which would otherwise be done in other ways. IT groups literally teach and reteach the world how to work. That's the job."
- IP Tech Talk – Barooq has moved his blog from blogspot to wordpress (good idea!). Previously titled Chronicles of CCIE Journey, now he is starting a run at CCIE Security and blogging here.
