Who am I? I’m Samuelson’s Director of Technology, Garth Ogle. Pleased to meet ya.
It’s interesting to come into industries which are typically very distant from the hi-tech world, and help them make use of the newest technology. My end of this deal has typically been the internet, web design and development, and with Samuelson’s my role has been mostly that.
I have to say I’ve been lucky, as when I arrived a half a year ago, we were already well into the action. The guys were already on Facebook and had created groups for their interests, and were involved in other services like LinkedIn.
By the by, this blog runs on a delightful piece of software called WordPress. I would suspect (though my research powers fail me) that a good 25% of blogs are running on it. It’s pretty simple for those of you who don’t know. You go to WordPress. You register. You make a new blog. Then, you log in and write what’s going on with you, and press ‘publish’. Basically no technical skills involved.
Anyway, I’ll be posting on topics relating to my expertise. Don’t worry – I’ll keep it interesting.
