I have the best job in the world. I am paid to think about the future.
Not in the sense of writers for Futurist magazine, or Science Fiction, but in the sense of the “next” Microsoft… the one that will be born out of the success of the coming product wave, and the ability of the company to capture new markets.
I think about that new Microsoft, and the capabilities that the systems need to have to empower it, and I write down that “future” and deliver it. That’s my job.
Dang I love this job.
If you have what it takes to be a futurist (aka Enterprise Architect), send me an e-mail using this site. We are looking for good people. In addition to all the good descriptions, I’ll add one condition… you must not be afraid of the future.
