William McKnight

Hello and welcome to my blog!

I will periodically be sharing my thoughts and observations on information management here in the blog. I am passionate about the effective creation, management and distribution of information for the benefit of company goals, and I'm thrilled to be a part of my clients' growth plans and connect what the industry provides to those goals. I have played many roles, but the perspective I come from is benefit to the end client. I hope the entries can be of some modest benefit to that goal. Please share your thoughts and input to the topics.

Recently in System Administrators Day Category

A director at a client site said he was getting overtures from his system administration department about doing something nice for them on Friday. They said it was "System Administration Day." Of course, it was not taken seriously, but I decided to do a web search to see if there was any validity to it. Sure enough, at least according to this website (the "System Administrator Appreciation Day" website), this Friday, July 28, is System Administrator Appreciation Day.

The website claims this day to be for many roles:

* Computer Administrators
* Network Administrators
* Internet Administrators (webmaster)
* Telephone (PBX) Administrators
* Voice-Mail Administrators
* Database Administrators (DBA)
* Email System Administrators
* Mainframe Administrators

So, Happy System Administration Day to all the system administrators out there. And thanks for all you do for information management. No project can be successful without it.
