I began to write “reflections” in 1997. Some were about visits to an IBM customer, a university campus, or just to reflect on some issue of the day that struck me at the time. The Reflections were not an attempt to be profound…. just to share. Needless to say, this was a precursor to blogging. Some of the postings on johnpatrick.com are based on reflections but eventually they will all get edited and moved to the blog for posterity. Some of the things in the reflections may also be found in one of my books. The index to Reflections from 1997 to 2002 is below or you may read through them sequentially by going here
