Even though, I'm still a Tech Ronin and writing about it, I've migrated over to a new domain: janet.tokerud.com. The blog name is now Independent Knowledge Professional. That sounds a little more formal and maybe it is. But, it's still about the fact that a great many of us are knowledge professionals and it may behoove us all to think of ourselves as independent. As you know if you've read much of tech ronin, the traditional idea of a permanent job has become obsolete. You may have a so-called permanent job, but most of us don't. As usual, I'm emphasizing...

I just ordered the 32gb + 3G. I wanted to get wi-fi only and save $129 but remembered all the times I've been frustrated being stuck without an internet connection on my laptop or iPod touch. I do have an iPhone 3GS and plan on keeping it but I figured it will likely be a certain amount of hassle to substitute iPhone 3G access for access on the iPad when that's what I want to use. Was on the fence due to the expense but finally went for it since none of us really know what kinds of use cases... Continue reading

I now have 2 WordPress.org blogs and 4 TypePad blogs plus, of course, Facebook, Linkedin and Twitter accounts. Here's the scoop. If you are a professional, consultant or independent contractor, you desperately need a web presence. If you love technology and can write your way out of a paper bag, you should almost certainly have a blog-based website as your main web presence - your home base. A blog is the not so new thing that comes after static websites. Blogs live, allow interaction and give you an easy way to make occasional updates. They have much better google juice...
