I’m a systems administrator for a number of the larger labs at the largest network hardware manufacturer. Auditing classes at a graduate theological seminary has become my current hobby. I love research and learning anything really.

I’m on the staff of the VP Engineering & Technology for a major aerospace company.  I’ve got to keep straight the details, status, etc., on dozens of activities that are in progress at any given time, and keep people focused and moving forward.  Boredom is not a problem.

I’m a college professor (School of Business), a textbook author for McGraw-Hill Higher Education, and an e-learning/instructional design consultant. In my spare time, I’m a PhD candidate at Purdue University, working (albeit slowly) on my dissertation. My favorite software tools are ConnectedText, PersonalBrain, Evernote, MyNotesKeeper, and Biblioscape.

Used to be a software developer.  Now a lawyer. 

Mostly I like outliner software just because I do.  Ever since personal computers have existed, I have been collecting software just for the heck of it.  (Really, as a kid I had a PET, a TRS80, a Commodore II, etc.)

As a developer, I was really involved in thinking about information management for users and under the hood.  I developed software for consumers that fits in the information management category but did not compete with outliners.  Professionally, I used pims and notetakers to keep track of all my notes about my employees and projects; MS project for project management; databases for bug tracking; and ever since it has existed, outlook for calendar and contacts.

As a law student, I was totally dependent on ADM, after first trying all the other outliners available.

As a lawyer, I use notetakers and outliners to keep track of everything anybody tells me by phone or in person and to gather and categorize snippets of cases, evidence, and briefs for future reference.  I would love to have a writing outliner that works for me to draft memos and briefs, but nothing clicks for me so I just use Word.  Still outlook for email, schedule, and contacts. 

Mostly, though, I still like to play with software and hardware just because I do.
