Happy Holidays From IT Jungle!
December 23, 2017 Timothy Prickett Morgan
The years are always long ones, and that is a virtue, not a curse. Having work and purpose, and being part of a community, is not just a good thing, but the thing. It can be easy to forget that sometimes, when we are busy and caught up in our busy-ness.
But now is the time of year when the good folks at IT Jungle, for which I have had the great honor to be associated with for many decades now, take a break and spend time with family and friends and let the words follow where they will for a while.
To those of you who read The Four Hundred and give us our purpose every week, we thank you and we look forward to continuing to serve you in the coming year, which will be our 28th year of publishing in one form or another. As I have pointed out before, the IBM i platform is still vibrant, is still doing useful work, and is still a part of the background hum of information that makes an economy and a culture go, and with the Power9 platform coming online in 2018, it is poised for a resurgence that we believe will materialize. And we are glad to be a part of that transformation.
We are thankful, as always, for the sponsors who have supported our publications this year and in years past and whose funds make it possible for us to do the work we do, and for IBM for supporting them directly and indirectly, and therefore, supporting us, too.
With that, we wish you all a happy holiday season and we will see you in 2018!
