One of the more enjoyable facets of my job is communication. So, as blogs have become an increasingly important medium of communication in society, I am starting my personal blog.
In my blog, I will write about the topics I deal with in my job -- Information technology areas I am involved in, including the Internet; servers and supercomputing; standards and open source initiatives like Linux; the evolution to Web services; and content management. I am particularly interested in the application of IT to the solution of increasingly sophisticated problems in business, government, health care and education, along with the tools and processes to help in the development of such applications. Public policy issues such as support for R&D; reasonable IP practices; and programs that encourage innovation will be a focus as well. As someone who was born in Cuba, I am concerned and involved with efforts to support diversity in education and the workplace and would expect to comment from time to time on those issues.
I also have interests beyond my job, such as films, Latin jazz and baseball. At this point, I am not sure how much of those interests will be reflected in my personal blog, but time will tell.
I anticipate an exciting journey for me. I hope it will have some value to those of you who read my blog.
