I'll jump on the new Member Bios bandwagon. Perhaps we'll start a movement. :)
I am a broadcast engineer at ESPN in Bristol, CT. I am a non-manager, awaiting that next promotion. I started listening to MT as a way to help me determine whether I wanted to venture into management or follow another path. Too many technical people move up into management when they really shouldn't. This leaves them unsatisfied and those under them poorly managed. I did not want this to happen with me so I started researching management before getting too deep.
I'm still catching up but between 1.5 podcasts/day (commute time) and the forums, I have learned a lot. I am excited to put this stuff to use. I am glad that management is in my future.
I have been using many of the tools already and cannot wait to be in a position to use the others.
Thanks to Mike and Mark for the Podcasts and starting this forum. Thank you to the forum members who have been a great resource.
