Blogging is a good way to meet folks that you probably wouldn’have met otherwise. I’ve met Frank, Sig, Craig and James via blogging, and yesterday I got to have a coffee with Roman. He is working in the new product introduction team at SAP, where he helps figure out how to get the new toys rolled out to the field. It is one thing building new stuff, it is another thing figuring out how to get consultants and sales colleagues upto speed. We need more folks that build bridges between the development world and the business world.
Next time he is over from Palo Alto we will need to do a beer. 10 minutes in the coffee corner isn’t enough.
I have masses of respect for folks that blog in English when it isn’t their home language. Check out his blog. The reading list alone makes it worth the visit.
