So, here I am back again with a short update from Mumbai India. This is actually my first travel trip ofthe year and as always, it’s interesting.I recently acquired an IPOD for Christmas (thanks family) and likely youwill hear lots of what I listen to.
In this case, there is a lyric by the BarenakedLadies that goes “Haven’t you always wanted a Monkey….”. Well, other than zoo’s,this is really the first time I have seen them live and for a few short hours,I was surrounded.Walking free likecat’s on an island sort of surprised me.This shot I took really grabbed my attention:
Sitting on a fencepost looking kindacool!Short answer is I no more want amonkey than I do a cat (at least at this point in my life). But I have to say, this shot made my mindwander some……
I think I mentioned earlier that I am lucky to be surroundedby smart folks.This week was noexception.I will be offering anotherpost on what it means to me to be in the IBM Sales Enablement business, butsuffice to say, I think I learn more than I teach most days. But I was surprised about how large theCOBOL population is here in this country.I have no real numbers for you, but it is quite large. Interesting and not surprising, a lot ofthese folks are performing Service work for offshore companies throughout theworld.Thousands ofthem, so I feel quite at home amongst these folks. And, I expect that there is a reciprocatedappreciation for the things we are doing with COBOL these days. (I know the notion of WDzwas well received.)
So, while I am still learning a bit about posting on thissite (I plan to try and format things a little better on this post – you can bemy judge).Hopefully I can do someHTML formatting for the Web here.
