I’ll start this post off with the disclaimer I’m not a person that is a big fan of or a believer in politics or politicians. Also, I’m going to say that I understand that two things you never talk about with people you don’t know are religion and politics.
With that said, I’m going to talk about the Obama speech today at the Democratic convention. Let me say in short… WOW! This is where the business and tech stuff comes in. I didn’t originally watch the speech. I did however watch it on CNN online (www.cnnpolitics.com). The reason I did is because of a client calling me right afterward and saying he wanted to get started right now on a project that we planned for possibly a month from now. He was fired up and ready to make some change in our country.
Soon after that were posts on Facebook from my friends and colleages about it. Still not convinced I chose to actually watch the video before my meeting tomorrow and I was not disappointed.
Now, I must say, I have not counted out Sen. Mccain nor do I even know much about what he really stands for. However, whatever happens, our country will definitely need their IT departments to step up the pace and be a little more cutting edge and progressive. People are getting fired up and I will make it my duty to keep you looking toward that edge. Still with the cost effective, budget minded and people centric nature that I have always provided.
Ooops, maybe I’ve been turned into a bit of politician there myself. Naaahhhh… You know I’m not changing. I’m still me.
