  First Post
Back in the dawn of time, around the late 90s, when CitySoft was doing a lot of custom application development, I got a call from an educator who was very excited about an online diary project that she was doing with high school kids. She said the kids were writing diaries and posting them online, for all the world to see. And, she wanted to know if we would build them a content management platform to make the process more automated. The only catch was she had no money and we would have to build it for free.

I still remember thinking, "What!? Teenagers - people at the most insecure point in their lives - exposing their innermost thoughts and feelings online for all the world to see? That'll never work."

Well... teenagers have obviously changed since I was growing up. But, at least we didn't get sucked into building the first blogging platform, eh? That wouldn't have been any fun at all. ;-)

Fast forward 10 years or so and I'm finally making my first blog post. Always on the cutting edge. My puritanical New England roots still make this an uncomfortably self-indulgent medium for me. But, I am excited about technology, great software, and all the ways our partners and clients are succeeding. So, there will no doubt be plenty to discuss.

All are welcome to join the discussion and hopefully some will find it useful.
