Answers, Not Questions!

This reminds me of when I was a junior engineer with Eyring Research in Provo, Utah.  I used to pepper my boss, Dennis Fairclough, with all sorts of questions.  One day when he was particularly exasperated with my frequent questions, he said, "Mark, I hired you to give me answers, not questions!"

The saving grace?  Dennis didn't have pointy hair, and he said it with a smile on his face!  I'll always be grateful for Dennis grounding me as an engineer.

About

Discovering Identity was founded on blogs.sun.com in May 2005 as a means of documenting my exploration of the field of Identity and Access Management. In February, 2010, I switched to hosting the blog at DiscoveringIdentity.com. In March 2012, I began posting Oracle-related information in both places.

Thanks for stopping by.
