Andy Grove on Dealing with Strategic Inflection Points

“you must realize that no amount of planning can anticipate such changes. Does that mean you shouldn’t plan? Not at all. You need to plan the way a fire department plans: It cannot anticipate where the next fire will be, so it has to shape an energetic and efficient team that is capable of responding to the unanticipated as well as to any ordinary event.”  Andy Grove Only the Paranoid Survive

Tom The Architect Has a New Home

After 8 years of hosting my blog and self-managing my blog at Dreamhost, I have finally moved to  Back in the day I had time to manage my own upgrades and tinker with things, but over the past 5 years I have had little time to be my own System Admin.  The reality is I have had little time to Blog and only my link monkey feed has been updating the site. The migration was forced by the ever increasing Hack fest the web has turned into.  The site had been hacked on 2 occasions due to the very outdated version of wordpress I was running and some poor chmod choices only part.   So keeping Tom The Architect safe and up to date is now the responsibility  I hope now to devote more time to writing, with the hopes that I might remember how to spell and form coherent sentences.
