@Technocrati- Sounds like the key to your happiness might be in finding the most tech-inclined CEOs. Maybe we should do a ranking of the top tech-inclined CEOs that aren't at obvious tech companies. Do you think something like that would help IT pros?

@TerryB- Well, i don't know if I'm qualified to say what cutting edge is, but I can see that you have a full and busy (and sounds like fun) career. And one thing that seems great about your job is the amount of freedom you have. I think a lot of us yearn for a little more freedom in our jobs, at least at various points in our careers.

@TerryB- I tis nice to see someone happy. thanks for the advice to folks. One counter question, though. Some IT folks think that they only way to work ont he really cutting edge stuff is to be at the biggest companies. Do you feel that way?

@Technocrati- Everything you say makes sense, but one question for you-- does changing the "powers that be" change the problems? Or do you see the same problems no matter where you work?
