On my way to Hong Kong

For the next 10 days I will be in Hong Kong, initially attending a week long residential leadership training course, then a day in our Hong Kong office. During this time things will be fairly busy so I won’t really be here, therefore I have decided to pre write a few posts on my flight to Hong Kong.

I left home at 6:15am this morning after getting to bed just after 1am, jumped the 8am flight to Sydney and transfered onto QF127 to Hong Kong. Over the last few hours I have been reading the May CIO Magazine and there will be some posts based on some of the articles “greening” of data centres, very important these days, covered 7 top tips in recruiting IT talent, what Gen Y really want written by Gen Y (this included a quote from Shannon Seery Gude and a reference to EXCELER8ion.com), and how to make an impact in the first 90 days of your new job. I need to read the Australian CIO score card for 2007, maybe another post, the article seems to highlight SOA (Service Oriented Architectures) very heavily, and indicate CIO who where using got paid more.

In addition to these posts I have an idea for a post on change management, more on SOA and a Web 2.0 coming to the enterprise which I have been mulling over for many weeks.

I have a fully charged iPod, 2 laptop batteries, feeds loaded and 9 hours ahead of me so let’s see what I get done.
