The topics discussed here grow out of the bread-and-butter issues that confront my consulting and software clients on a daily basis. We'll talk about prosaic stuff like Membership Management, Meetings and Events Management and Fundraising, broader ideas like security and software project management, and the social, cultural, and organizational issues that impact IT decision-making.

Bill High

My very good friend Bill High died in a traffic accident on Friday.

Bill was a guy who did not own a computer, and never carried a cell-phone. He never used email for personal correspondence; a note-card was far more to his liking. Bill had a sharp, wacky, intellectual sense of humor. He didn't believe that information packaged in bite-sized feeds for easy digesting was of much value - if we saw a movie together, I'd be likely to find sixty xeroxed pages of scholarly articles about the director in the mail a week later.

Bill devoted his professional life to the welfare of children, first as a child protection social worker, and later as a social worked in the Durham public schools.

I can't believe he's gone.
