About Margaret Rouse

“Overheard in the Blogosphere is like an impressionist painting about information technology. Close up, it’s just a cluster of colorful quotes. Take a step back and look at all the posts together — and you begin to see a picture of what’s going on in IT. For your convenience, I’ve begun to archive the WhatIs.com Word of the Day newsletters on this blog.”

Margaret Rouse, WhatIs.com

I’m a technical writer and published author. I speak fluent Geek, Biz-speak, SAPanese, Cloud Computing, Big Data, Agile, VAR and most Vendor dialects. I spend of a lot of my time translating these highly specialized languages into plain English. Before joining TechTarget in August 2000, when they acquired the technical computer dictionary, whatis.com, I put my background in computer science to practical use as a trainer, writer, LAN administrator and webmaster.

I’m 53 years old and proud of it. People who know me personally call me Peggy. I live in Athens, New York and have been telecommuting for the last seven years. My husband is a Web developer, a Mac guy. We have three kids and are puppy raisers for Guiding Eyes for the Blind. There’s usually a dog under my desk.

This blog is kind of my virtual bulletin board. I’m picking out things that go with the WhatIs.com Word of the Day, things that I want to remember later on, trends I want to watch, buzzwords I think we need to define — anything that catches my interest that I want to share with other people who are also watching the big picture.
