Can your IT guy do this? Can you?


Ah, this brings back memories.

The 30 skills every IT person should have (infoworld.com)

It’s probably funnier to me since over the course of history, I’ve been:

  • The nerd guy
  • The pizza guy
  • The delivery guy
  • The police guy
  • The computer guy
  • The network guy
  • The security guy
  • The consulting guy
  • And the list goes on…

Ted’s ranting and raving over @ SSC about not wanting to be the IT Guy. You are, Ted. Get over it. People generalize, so just be glad that it’s a relatively innocuous stereotype that you’re caught in.

I agree that I’m not a typical IT admin monkey, but… Like it or not, we’re "IT guys," Ted. You might convince somebody to call you the database guy, but there’s strength in numbers. I recommend T-shirts and bumper stickers:

I’m an IT guy, and I vote.

Heh.

 

p.s. Three cheers for the Supreme Court! They finally got one right this week in Heller. w00t!
