    I have decided to clean up and update my certification roadmap, I have dropped a ton of stuff from it and moved the focus to where I plan on taking my career, and where I think the future trends in IT will lead

    I was going to write a short article for all those new to IT about where I feel the direction of the industry is headed, wasnt sure if my experiance counts for much, but I landed on the tail end of two cert booms and the dot com rise and fall, so i have a little insider knowledge, figured it might help those just starting out to better direct themselves where the talent is needed, and not just continue to flood the already flooded sectors

    I'd be very interested in reading that Phoenix. As a relatively newcomer to IT I would appreciate the views of more experienced insiders, especially ones that are not pushing/selling anything.

    I'll second that Nugget. The Mike Myers interview (here) did shed some light onto the industry and how it was changing but please go for it Phoenix. I'm sure it will be worth the while. :D :D
