These are just some of the good, the bad, and the ugly events of 2002, with some thoughts about what might come down the pipe in 2003. There are many more in each category. Feel free to offer up your impressions on InformIT's discussion board. Many of you will disagree with my experiences, impressions, and advice. That's okay. The only way that we can all get a handle on where our industry is going and maintain a respectable level of employment is by sharing our observations and stories. I would love to hear yours on the discussion board. Here's hoping that your 2003 in IT will be filled with an employment environment that you enjoy and growing financial success. And most of all, peace of mind. As one certified professional to another, I wish you all the best for 2003!
