I feel it again.
The pull from the light.

It's been over 2 years since my last post, and the previous was the last before that.
When I get busy, I stop writing. For the last 4 years, I've been extremely busy running my business, TalkToTheManager.
In these last few years, I've learned so much. I've been down the fundraising trail, made pitch decks and business plans & projections, pitched investors, presented at pitch events - all the things I didn't think I'd ever do.
Now I'm back. Business is good, but it doesn't require all my time. It's in a great place.
I've done great in honing my business skills. However, in the last few months I've been skilling up my technology skills. Technology moves fast, and you have to keep up. Keeping up on technology also saves you time. New tools and tech come out that let you spin up services, infrastructure, and sites faster and easier. So being smarter about technology allows you to be more agile and responsive to customer and business needs.
I've also gone back to basics. I've been brushing up on computer science fundamentals, learning advanced topics (like machine learning) and generally becoming more awesome. In 3 months, I want to be unrecognizable to my 2015 self.
You're going to see a lot more technology covered here. I'll still share business topics from time to time, but you'll be seeing more technology than business topics covered for a while.
Perhaps the pendulum will swing back to business and I'll overwhelm you. We'll see. technology and business are both passions of mine, and this site will always intertwine them.
I will finish what you started.
