Steve ModicaWhen I used to work at SGI, I would often wonder what “C” level officers did.  I once got to ask Ed McCracken what he spent most of his time doing day-to-day. At the time, he was CEO of SGI.

His answer was that he was currently spending a lot of time talking to Congressmen trying to convince them to stop propping up Cray as a national asset.  In hindsight, perhaps buying Cray was not the best idea.

As the Chief Technical Officer of Small Tree, which is a much smaller company, I have to wear a lot more hats.  I thought I might include a list of the things I’ve been up to over the last month.

  • Deer hunting (actually, just watching this year)
  • Grocery shopping 
  • Barbecuing
  • Evaluating Titanium follow on chassis designs
  • Helping select next generation Software Defined Radio development platforms for the Army
  • Working on Adobe performance issues
  • Evaluating a new Avid sharing product (that works great!) called Strawberry
  • Evaluating a new Digital Asset Manager (that also works great) called Axle
  • Discussing our new high performance iSCSI products with partners
  • Fixing the phone system
  • Testing Thursby’s Dave software with Avid
  • Helping customers with Small Tree products
  • Running barefoot (I run barefoot and in Vibrams…. a lot)
  • Working on a new voice router design for the US Rangers
  • Helping my kids with math homework
  • Processing firewood for the winter
  • Breaking up the recyclable cardboard boxes
  • Writing up an NAB presentation proposal
  • Prepping for a visit from the Soldier Warrior team of the US Army
  • Small Tree Board of Directors meeting
  • Christmas shopping
