Great article on Asim Khan, the New Zealander in charge of IT for Oracle Team USA.
Especially these quotes.
So how did Khan end up in such an interesting job? By accident, it turns out. He said he had “no interest in sailing whatsoever”
“The fact that they’re world famous sailors is really by-the-by to me,” he said.
I love us IT guys. Always one of the more honest departments in a firm. Most of us just want to get the stuff working and move onto the next problem. We aren’t that interested in the actual users at all (and clearly the feeling can be rather mutual) !
