To Whom It May Concern,

Greetings - I am Andree Jacobson; currently CIO for the New Mexico
Consortium (a non-profit in Los Alamos, NM). I also run a small consulting
company that assists other local companies with systems design,
implementation, and training on computer systems. However, even outside the
professional world, I am a long time computer systems and networking
administrator. I’ve practically been on any system I could get my hands on
since before I started school, started small - but now it’s the very large
systems that tickle my mind. The point I’m trying to get across here, is
that I’m passionate about computers - one of man’s greatest technology
creations. I find it fascinating to see how we keep coming up with new
uses, how the field of Computer Science is still growing and morphing
rapidly, and we’re right here in the middle of it! It shows no sign of
slowing down either. I am however also baffled with the lackluster of
education and prestige for the field of Systems Administration. Ever since
the early days of computation it seems that the people who know how to
operate these systems always take a secondary role, yet the world’s whole
infrastructures rests in the hands of a handful of very talented
individuals who are often ignored. I’m running for the board of LOPSA
because I believe in the organization’s mission, and I would be proud the
have the opportunity to represent this particular group of people.*
