You have arrived at my WordPress blogging (and self marketing) website. I hope it is not by chance and is a planned visit, and I hope you find the stay enjoyable.

You will find a growing number of  my tech blogs here, which help share my ongoing views of the IT and Technology industry and my passion for gadgets.

For the self marketing piece I have my Bio page which provides the background of my 30 years in this illustrious industry.

For a more professional version, along with greatly received recommendations, visit my LinkedIn page at http://uk.linkedin.com/in/dannylarah/ and by all means if you’re not already linked send me an invite to LinkIn.

Please feel free to provide comments and/or feedback on my posts, and I will publish them (subject to decency moderation!)

Many thanks

Danny
