Happy Father's Day
By suncpo on Jun 17, 2008
So, it was Father's Day this past Sunday here in the US-- a greeting card confection of a holiday to be sure, but a great day to stop & think about your dad. My girls can blog about their wonderful dad one day. This blog belongs to Daddy-- the geeked out, meta data, privacy & security, super sarcastic wise acre guy Dad who is \*my\* dad.
This is him: http://itresearch.forbes.com/detail/RES/1205249349_373.html
He's a smartie and a first gen privacy guy even though he would likely answer to architect or something of the sort. The cool thing is that he's been around the computer business since the punch card days & he knows many of the why's that we take for granted were built in the first place. If you think Miss Thang is hilarious, she's got nothing on my dad. Unfortunately he also periodically checks up on my blog, so I have to behave myself a bit. Perhaps he'll get a code name in future episodes...
Dad's first entrepreneurial exercise was in software that helped large mainframe computers do a "data dump". Old data was bogging machines down & causing them to malfunction or stop functioning altogether.
Here I sit, 30+ years later & what I'm working out today is how do we do enough data dumping to keep the assets driving value & dump those driving inefficiency & causing foolish risk.
Hmmm. I'd better call my dad.
Love you Poppa Finn! You are my inspiration AND you make me laugh. For what more could a girl ask? (Don't tell Mom I blogged about you first.)
