Reply to "We lost almost a full percentage in IT workforce count over 9 year period"

...I started in IT because, as a writer, the DOS box I used (Remember Word Star?) got upgraded to Win 3.1--I was in the field, so I ended up administering my unit. This meant a lot of reading on my own.



Thayfen, what kind of writing are you engaging in? If you have any publishing, let us know all about it.

Are you into the network administration side? And do you do shell? My background is programming, and I have been out of the IT industry for at least 6 years as a choice and it has been for the better, not because of the speed and competition but to toss aside being mechanically oriented. My friends in the field are having doubt about this career and I am glad I left on good terms with myself.

Personally I want to say thanks for helping our people, even if we are driven by other things[ie stubborn], to get us familiar with what is going on to better educate us and spread the wealth of information we have. I continue this battle myself and it has it wins like you reported. To me you are a miracle worker.

Thanks for sharing.
