The End of an Era

As you probably know, I’ve started working at Pluralsight as a Curriculum Director, and I’m having a blast doing it. I’m also continuing my work at, including helping to organize the PowerShell Summit, respond to questions in our forums, and so on. I’ve even been working on some ebook projects in the background, which will probably come to light in 2016.

All that means that I’ve had to cut back on a few areas – and, in a month or so, you’ll see the last of my articles on That link should actually turn up a search result with all of my articles – some 350 of them dating back to July of 2002. That’s more than 12 years of articles! I had a similarly long run of more than 6 years and 70+ articles on TechNet Magazine before Microsoft killed that publication, running from December 2006 to June 2013.

I’ve absolutely loved working with these publications, through name changes and as they’ve shifted from paper to digital and reached a whole new audience. I’m delighted that and sister sites like are still lively and relevant; I hope you’ll check them out and find something useful.

I’ll continue blogging here (and apologize for being so quiet in the first quarter of 2015 – it’s been busy), and posting the odd technical article on I hope to see you there.

Happy New Year. See What We Did, There?

I hope you’ve enjoyed reading my articles on this site over the past year. Whether you realized it or not at the time, I set out to write 26 articles related primarily to technology and tech careers; this is the last of ’em. They’ve been interspersed with other observations, which I hope you’ve found somewhat interesting.

If nothing else, I hope you’re considering what your career should look like in 2015 and beyond, and thinking about ways to get it from wherever it is today, to wherever you’d like it to be. One thing’s for certain: the tech world will continue to change and move on with or without us, and it’s up to us to continue to change. It’s by paying attention to the “meta information” in your career that you’ll pull ahead.

I haven’t yet considered what I’ll write about for 2015. I’m open to suggestions, or perhaps I’ll just play it by ear.

Thanks for reading, and please have a safe and happy 2015.
