Systems admin, college instructor, freelance IT support. I'm also studying for a personal trainer certification.
I would love to be a part of the forefront of technology, although my skill set and location hardly allow for it. The best I could do is market/review/benchmark products or provide feedback on designs/products to manufacturers, both of which are already done by much more well-known tech-gurus. My current plan is to save money to relocate towards tech industries, rather than the corn fields. I have done this once, but with poor planning and absolute minimal savings. I lasted 3 months away from "home" until I exhausted my savings, and minimum wage earnings, hunting for a job. I've added much more to my portfolio, and bank account, since then. Perhaps it is time to try again.
Too bad Tek Syndicate isn't hiring outside of the Seattle area. :-)
