Today, Thomas Gideon of The Command Line podcast is featuring an interview with yours truly about the challenges and gifts of shifting into a technical management role in our careers. This is a followup to a conversation we had two years ago when each of us were preparing to make the leap. As usual, Thomas cuts to the heart of the conversation with his incisive interviewing style.


In the coming weeks, I will be kicking off some projects involving various media types; audio, pdf…perhaps video. Some will be podcasts, from the archives (like today’s post), some will feature a new project I am kicking off, and some will be podcasts where I am a guest or co-host.

If you want to get everything, my text posts, audio, pdfs, etc, you can subscribe to

If you want only the audio, pdfs, and such, you can subscribe to

In any case, I’d like to encourage you to comment, to share, and to let me know what you think as I fire up the creative engines. Nothing is worse than working in a vacuum. I hope to hear from you soon.
