It's about time that I got around to this one, and if any of you have been wondering which side of the argument I might come down on, you might be disappointed to find out that I sit firmly on the fence on this issue.

What to Write

JohnWilder John Wilder Profile: JohnWilder

I guess I'm beginning to get the hang of this blogging thing, and I appreciate the feedback I've received so far. There are times when it's a bit of struggle to decide what to write about, and there are other days when the topics tend to write themselves. As I wrote in my first post, there are...

The iPhone – an Enterprise device?

JohnWilder John Wilder Profile: JohnWilder

Now that Apple has announced the long-awaited SDK for the iPhone, I thought it would be a good time to discuss mobile devices.

Office Moves – Part 1
