TechBait Origin:

My name is Tom Connelly. I have worked in the software industry since around 1994. I always loved computers, but I decided to go into it as a profession when I realized that mom and dad’s dreams of me being a doctor or a lawyer were just not going to happen because that just wasn’t my calling. I wish it was, as I would have had a much better pay day.

C’est la vie!

Techbait started a long time ago as an internal email newsletter which I used to send to colleagues at a software company where I was employed. It was mainly tech news stories and industry topics which I found interesting. I was a bit fearful that people rolled their eyes when it came around, so I stopped doing it for a bit. When I stopped, a few senior managers mentioned in passing that they missed it, so I continued writing them for a while. I slowly stopped sending the emails, but set up a cheesy website pulling in some RSS feeds. I also threw up some banner ads. I never made any money from the ads, and the feeds were less than perfect.

I am going to revive this with a spiffy WordPress blog. I will include both RSS populated posts, some commercial ads of a techie nature, as well as posts on current tech events penned by me.
