Blog tag – I’m it!

I just got an e-mail from Craig Mullins ( saying that I have been blog tagged. I had to check on his blog site to see what it all meant, and apparently it’s the latest game. Each blogger reveals eight things about themselves (originally five) and tags eight (originally five) other bloggers – who in turn do the same. It’s like a chain letter without the final sentence of doom to anyone who breaks the chain. It seems like a bit of fun – so I thought I’d join in.

Craig was blog tagged by Willie Favero (, who says he was tagged by Lewis Cunningham. Willie also says that the first blogger he can find mentioning the game is Jeff Pulver (

So here are some facts about me:
  1. I live in the UK near Bath and Bristol and not too far from Silbury Hill and the ancient stones of Avebury. My family moved here 21 years ago, and my wife and I have stayed put ever since.
  2. I’ve been a school governor for nearly 15 years, and chairman of a local charitable trust for eight years.
  3. I have two grown-up daughters who are both at university at the moment – other parents will recognize just how much this costs!!
  4. I play the guitar (badly) and make feeble attempts at playing the saxophone. But I enjoy it.
  5. I have written and published three books – two on VM performance and one on MVS automation.
  6. I set up my own company (iTech-Ed Ltd – in February 2004 and it is still going.
  7. I have enjoyed holidaying in Kenya (safari) and China – you can see these photos on Facebook, where I also started the Eddolls group for people across the world with the same surname (obviously!!).
  8. I taught myself to juggle and am now trying to learn how to ride a unicycle.

So, who to tag next? There are just so many people who have already been tagged. So here’s my starting point:
Aseem Anand
Marc Wambeke
Ian Steyn
(I’ll add more later…)

They are now "it"!
