What Did I Do - May 29, 2009

Just a quick note on how I am writing these posts. I am doing some of it throughout the day as an open email and then closing them at the end of a day. At some point I will email them to my blog. Therefore there may be tense issues in one post... It will be part of the ride I guess.

Here goes WDID for today:

Friday's always seem to be weird in this role. They take one of 3 possible paths

1. Meetings

2. Disasters

3. Catch up/ close out the week

Thank God today is a #3.

As of 9:47 I have been closing out a list of tasks. A couple of letter's of recommendation for some co-workers, some research on the Illinois Virtual High School, and a couple of other tasks.

I am about to turn my attention to my Google Reader and catch up on the happenings in the tech world.

I also will be writing a blog post on how we put together bids/quotes here and the savings we tend to see from it. You should see that post elsewhere in my blog early next week.

Ok it is 11:23 - gave up on Google reader. Went back a little way and marked all as read. I am going to watch the whole Google Wave presentation instead. I read the reviews and the write up, but I want to see the whole thing.

1pm. WOW - google wave even better than advertised - game changer!

Afternoon was spent on a couple other things on the to-do list. I also finished up the other blog posting on purchasing/RFQ that is below this one.

The day ended with my end of the year review with my boss (who is now the new Superintendent). It went very well. I have a couple of things to work on for next year, but overall they are very happy with the job I am doing here. So am I :)

Have a good weekend everyone!
