I have to admit that writing is not really my thing…but technology and home electronics IS.
So while some people might love to sit down and pour themselves out onto a blog, I’m not one of those. More likely, this will be a source of frustration for me. In fact for me to sit and do anything for very long is just not me. I’m too ADHD for that. Give me something to do…and I’m all over it. But don’t make me sit down!!
Hmmm…maybe I can pay someone to do this for me.
Brain fart. That happens when someone’s mind is going different directions all at once. Maybe that’s exactly what helps me do what I do. Tell me what kind of media system, for example, you want in your home and its almost like I’m invading the problem from different directions all at one time. You might think I’m not listening to you, but I’m already processing solutions to what you were just telling me.
I’ve created so many electronic systems for people over the years that when they’re explaining what they want, I already have a fairly clear picture of the kinds of equipment they will want to rely on.
But what I really like is when someone throws up some twist into the mix and says “…can you do that?” Because while I may not have done that before, I have some ideas at work and that’s when the wheels REALLY start turning. Then I know to check with other pros I’m networked with on programming, integration or else new technology just beginning to see the light of day in the marketplace. That’s when things really get fun.
All I really want to say in this first blog is that technology is changing so quickly to make life better that I want to get the word out. I really don’t want to make this some geeky place where you’re swamped with technospeak. Just honest communication about what is available to make life more enjoyable!
So I hope you check in with me for a few of my posts and let me know if this is working for you. And really, if you have something you’re curious about that you read or heard someone talking about, leave a comment here and that might be the very thing I need to get into on a next post since there’s already some buzz going around.
Ok, well I had to begin somewhere…so there it is!
