When I started this blog – it was on an intranet at my IT job at The Gazette. It was focused on issues pertinent to the things going on in a newspaper IT department.  Soon, I wanted to go bigger and make it live on tomaltman.com.  I bought the domain in 2004 – but it was not until November of 2007 that it was used for this site and I started to blog more regularly.
