Wrap up Friday

Http://docandersen.wordpress.com – walking through the concepts of transitional services for the new SaaS, cloud services world.

http://docandersen.podbean.com – posting a podcast later today about transitional services. Of course you can always find Fred and Ed stories there as well.

Watched the movies Frost Nixon last night. What a great trip down memory lane. I have mixed feelings about that time. My grandfather was a huge fan of Richard Nixon and I of course listened to everything he said. However, personally I was heading down a more liberal path so at that time it was quite a personal turmoil for me.

Once he resigned everything changed and we never talked about him again. But for a time it was really difficult. My grandfather was one of the largest influences in my life – so I was glad it was over.

Watching the movie however, I was reminded of that. I was also reminded of the cultural change that occurred with the resignation of the president. John Kennedy left us with “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.” The resignation of Richard Nixon left us with a feeling of “self is greater than unity.”

Perhaps much of the go-go 90’s came out of that one day, August 8, 1974 when America changed from a shining ideal to just another country with all the problems countries have.
