Testing: smells (oooohhhh what is that ?) cars (what happens if...), recipes (what about adding...), furniture (let me see what happens if I scratch it), authority (you want me to do what), meetings (what is the value, what is the agenda, why am I needed), machinery (wonder what that button does..) and new code/applications ...ala My developerWorks and downloads available at developerWorks.. let me make the software cry)
Tom's blog says it all ...in fact it is almost an ad for Lotus software. where all the social software is used to solve a business problem.....in fact...some of the problems I was finding ....can't help it...I like to break things....
It all started when I was a child and continues to this day. I like to challenge the status quo, ask questions and find holes....all in the hopes of making the world a better place - dare I say
Smarter? (couldn't help myself)
Not that there is anything wrong with those that like to build ....I just like to test, challenge, takes things apart, see how things work, and dare I say ..destroy.

I first arrived on My developerWorks thinking it was just a destination: check in, look at the map, go sightseeing, leave, tell your friends you had a good time and that you might visit again. Now I realize, My developerWorks is a journey: check in, don't bother with a map, take to the streets, hop on a bus...explore ...with every corner bring something new...another path to take. I have found myself going down many odd paths on My developerWorks (ok maybe they aren't odd) ...yes I've hit some bumps and I may even have some bruises...but overall the journey is what My developerWorks is about...explore, learn, play and laugh......

I like numbers.....it all started with basic math on my fingers and then progressed from there to my toes and now I am just numbers driven. But numbers alone are no longer enough - value and quality are important. My developerWorks shows you numbers! You can see how many people have visited a blog, made comments on your blog , joined a group, participated in activities and how many bookmarks for a topic or a person. Bookmarks.....bookmarks really got me. The value behind the numbers. I saw the value in adding useful resources I use/find to bookmarks, tagging those bookmarks ...all in the name of sharing. But then...then the numbers got me. I saw I was the Most Active (see below) and set a goal of at least getting to 100 bookmarks ..and now I've exceed (and plan to add more) I realize I won't always be the most active (and in fact, I hope I am not soon as I have hit my goal and can move on to just adding vs tracking) The richness of Bookmarks. impresses me to no end. - easy to share with others and easy for me to find info I find of value.
If numbers drive you (and you believe in value behind them), My developerWorks will hook you.

Blogs are about being authentic and for me to be authentic I have to have fun. I was inspired to begin this blog after reading about the Chief Happiness Officer (CHO) - happiness at work is the most important factor that contributes to good careers, happy lives and business success. My intention is to blog about the fun, the absurd, the thrills, the chills and the adventures of my developerWorks experience and about what I find on My developerWorks.. Stay tuned as during this adventure I hope to find the things that can make us laugh, challenge our thoughts, vent , ask questions and listen, listen, listen. Oh....and make a few confessions along the way too.
