Remember that blog I started last year, Meta-Manage, where I was going to write about management stuff? I wouldn’t blame you for forgetting about it, since I regularly seem to forget about it too. Anyways, I’m hoping to start writing there more often. I don’t know if I’ll start writing here too, so as always, if you want to keep up with me the best way is via Twitter.

I’m doing lots of cool stuff at my job, but I don’t want to bother all of you with work/management posts, so I’m going to keep those at Meta-Manage. But if Atlassian tools or reporting or anything tech-management related is of interest to you, you should head over there and subscribe.

As for this blog, I’m going to keep plugging away at my master’s and maybe return to more regular personal blogging once that is finished in December. Though technically, I have one more class to take in the spring, and I want to get a couple of certifications in the first half of next year, so that will probably keep me pretty busy too.

I have the weirdest geek obsession

August 9, 2014

I just discovered¬†CMMI¬†and I’m fascinated by it. Why have I never heard of this before? I don’t know that being a Project Management Geek is better than being a Star Wars Geek, but that’s what I am. I’m buying and reading books about PM in my spare time. I love reading articles about this stuff. […]
