Microsoft posted up a huge infographic, shown below, that is showcases how the tole of the IT worker has changed from the start of personal computing. A hobby in the beginning has shaped an industry and changed the word of computing as we know it today.
As an IT employee I see how important I and others such as myself in keeping you and the world online day to hour to minute, and even down to the second itself.
And while tech guys such as I find this amusing I am sure non-tech types will also be entertained to read, perhaps learn that the roles of an IT worker will never diminish, even with the move to cloud computing. Think about it, someone… someplace needs to run it all.
And I will be that guy when the time comes.
