Why I Tech

Tech enables us to see the signal through the noise. It connects people, ideas, concepts. Tech is a rising tide that can lift all ships, but that depends on us.

My personal tech/IT-trend 2017

My tech prediction is that we will finally stop talking about digital and just do it. When digital is integrated into what we do and how we work, we can stop talking about it. Digital marketing and digital manufacturing will go back to being just marketing and manufacturing.”
