Well, here we go. I finally got tired of never getting around setting up a fancy blog engine on some personalized domain with a hosting account or some server running under my desk. So here we go – using Live Spaces Blogging to finally have a technical blog. It’ll do just fine, and it’s supported by Windows Live Writer, which is a really great little Windows app that can post to all kinds of blogging engines: http://explore.live.com/windows-live-writer
To get started, a little introduction – I’m Ryan Dorrell (obviously), and I’m one of the founding partners at AgileThought, Inc. in Tampa, FL. I’m in the role of CTO, which means I have the privilege of leading the technical direction of our company, and I have an immense amount of technical talent surrounding me to assist me in this endeavor. Not too many days go by where I don’t think “wow, we have some amazingly smart people working here”. I also stay very involved in project work, and it’s not uncommon for me to work or talk with several different customers in a given week.
The intent of this blog is to be relatively technical, with a focus on the Microsoft stack. I have a few posts queued up from our internal AgileThought blogs, so you may see a flurry of posts here in the next few days.
Also, I’m on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/ryan_dorrell (or http://www.twitter.com/runryerun if you want to follow my running training). I’m also at LinkedIn http://www.linkedin.com/in/ryandorrell and Facebook http://www.facebook.com/ryan.dorrell – but in full disclosure, will generally only accept requests if I know you personally – nothing against you, but those 2 social sites have more personal info 🙂
