2012 – Happy New Year

Firstly, welcome to my blog.

I have never been someone who has blogged about anything in the past. So why start now? Well it seems like a good way to share information and start discussions on topics that I am interested in.

This blog will be mainly focused on technology, whats good, whats bad and how to make the most of it. Being a mad petrol head there may be some information thrown in about my motorsport pursuits as well.

In the next blog post I will talk a bit about my background in the technology business and detail the tools I use every day for my business.
