Technology Happens


Techno Helping Hand
Technology can complicate, it's not supposed to, but IT occasionally does.  Techno-complexities tend to accumulate over time, some are unavoidable or mandated, others may be self-inflicted - rarely anticipated.

Unfortunate but ... IT Happens!

This site/practice is an experiment, devoted to sharing technology interests, knowledge, experiences and skills.  The mission is to unravel some of the complexities and help others leverage technology to simplify work or play.

The site will evolve as research and projects are chronicled.  Topics are expected to range from extremely basic to complex or even bleeding-edge due to personal interests and needs of friends or clients.   

More to come ...
