New Stuff, Simplex-IT Style!

March 3rd, 2017

Holy Crow.  It’s March.  I know that February is a short month, but seriously?!

A lot of stuff is happening.  A lot of stuff happened.  A lot of stuff is going to happen.

My world has been tossed a bit upside down this week, so the message this month is a bit brief (and the newsletter is a couple of days late).  We should…check that, I should be caught up within the next month.

But we've got a lot of "new" stuff going on.  Such as:

  • We’re welcoming some new customers here with Simplex-IT.  So far I think they like us.  Go figure.
  • And we’ve got a new face joining Simplex-IT, in the name of Rob Walter.  He’s joining Patti and Kayla in the Sales and Marketing area.   More on that later this month.
  • Speaking of which, Patti, Kayla, Rob and I should all be in our “new” offices in our expanded area by the end of the month.
  • By March we should have an additional Tech, joining Kevin’s gang of Alaa, Jeff, Connor and Freddie.  It’ll be good to get back to full strength on that side.
  • Quick question.  What do you think of this book title: “Unleash Your Inner Geek: A CEO’s Survival Guide to Information Technology”?  Yup, it’s the working title of a book I’m putting together.  I’ve had the idea of writing a book since I was a kid.  Looks like it should see the light of day in the July timeframe.

More on the book in the next couple of months.  I’ve got to arrange a photo shoot for the cover this month.  Thankfully, there’s always PhotoShop.

Remember last year where we did a security lunch ‘n learn event in July?  We’re going to do it again in April.  See the article here for more info on that.

If you’re like most small to medium organizations, you haven’t shored up your Policies and Procedures regarding IT.  Am I right?  Not to worry.  We’ve got a unique workshop that we’re going to unveil in July.  Attendees will actually walk away with a good working start for their organization.  We’re not aware of any other IT organization (anywhere!) doing this sort of thing.  There’s going to be a cost (probably in the neighborhood of $100 or so), but it’ll go to a charity.  It will also be very limited (we’re thinking a dozen?) since it’ll be a workshop.

Finally, as to new things.  Project "IT" had its first run-through last week.  It looks pretty cool.  More on that in the months to come.

I survived Washington DC, and to the best of my knowledge, Washington DC survived me.

Life is precious, boys and girls.
