Apart from my regular job as a senior technology professional, I also consider myself to be an intellectual with wide ranging interests. With my experiences on life and work in many challenging roles, some of them in leadership positions, I tend to view a lot of things beyond the obvious. With a conviction to be fair to all and goodness to the humanity at large some of my comments may be at a variance to popular feelings. But I offer no apologies. After all, views of all need to be heard and shared before we decide. I hope some of the points I raise will add to the quality of the discussions.
