When it comes to information technology workers, there’s one thing we definitely need to survive. And that’s new emerging technologies.
For IT, emerging technologies are our food, our Sun, air, water, you name it. Without new and disruptive technologies we would truly have the boring, never changing jobs that the “IT doesn’t matter” types have been predicting for years.
To me, that’s the greatest thing about working in information technology. Just when everyone thinks that they have the whole thing figured out, some new, unexpected and disruptive technology comes around that changes the rules of the game and makes things interesting for those of us who like the challenge of something new.
It is because of the importance of emerging technologies that we here are at eWEEK have decided to launch a new site called eWEEK’s Emerging Technology. I’ll be running that site and I hope that you my readers will check it out. We’ll be doing everything from reviews to analysis to commentary to deep dives into what specific emerging technologies are about and how they’ll effect your business and your job.
Of course I’ll still be writing regularly in this blog, as well as in the pages of eWEEK. But when you want my take on a new emerging technology, head on over to etech.eweek.com. I’ll see you there.
