It wasn’t my plan that the last issue of “Out on a LIMS®: The Newsletter For People Who Risk Life and LIMS on a Daily Basis” would be issued within a few days of the GeoMetrick Enterprises twentieth anniversary nor that it would be within a few days of adding a significant new customer. I probably couldn’t have timed it all better.
In my efforts to convert my newsletter readers to be blog readers, I’m still working on expectations management, as the two are different.
This blog has been active since August 2009 and I have been publishing the corresponding newsletter since June of 2001.
