Om migI've been an analyst with Gartner since 2004, and have been in the IT industry since 1986.

Om mitt bibliotekMy library contains two specialists collections, one on information security and one on the more abstract and related topic of 'information.' Interested in the history and nature of information, I've been collecting historical books on computer security, with several from the 1970s.

My belief is that my collection of books on information is significant, containing many texts that I have not found at sources such as the libraries at Royal Holloway and the London Science Museum. Books from the 1930s-60s on the use of punched card equipment constitute a subset of this collection. I certainly don't limit myself to technical histories: at least half of the collection is composed of more philosophical and historical treatises on the social effects of information.

Although I consider them to be interesting and I recommend them, I am not including recent business-oriented texts such as Wikinomics, The Big Switch, and Everything is Miscellaneous. This is an arbitrary and probably wrong decision on my part, especially given the relevancy of Weinberger's book to the area of finding information.

Just as a matter of pride, I've kept a list of all books I've read, along with comments, since 1999. The many books that I started, but did not finish, do not appear on this lifelist. I exported that list, which includes some books I do not own, and used it as the starting point for my list on Librarything. I've since added most of the books in my home office, but not books belonging to my wife or son.
