Hi, my name's Jonathan Noble. I've been working in I.T. for the last dozen+ years and blogging for at least half of those about various things that interest me in technology. That basically means anything from mobiles (I've had well over a dozen handsets - I'm rather addicted!), to the web (where I spend a lot of time), via my day job (which these days mostly means PowerShell).
Since May 2009, I have been a member of the TechNet UK IT Professional Community Council, representing people working with Microsoft products, particularly in the area of IT infrastructure. As of January 2011 I am also a member of the Microsoft Server and Cloud International Customer Advisory Board.
In July 2009, I received Microsoft's Most Valuable Professional award for my work with PowerShell. The award "is given to exceptional technical community leaders who actively share their high quality, real world expertise with others" over the past year. In January 2012, I was fortunate to become a PowerShell MVP for a second time, and received a third award in January 2013.
In January 2010, I became a Co-founder of North East Bytes (NEBytes) - a user group covering Microsoft technologies for developers and IT professionals in North East England. While the group's meetings tend to focus on deep dives into precific technologies, we think that the people who are interested in those will also be interested in more general tech news and discussion, so we cover those in a podcast - the NEBytes Bytecast.
While the content of this site is mostly around tech topics, I may occasionally post about my other passions, like video games and basketball. I'm also a massive fan of Disney and regularly visit Walt Disney World and the other theme parks in Orlando, but I tend to restrict myself to talking about that on DISboards.com.
I maintain this site mostly for fun. If you find anything on it particularly interesting or useful, I'd love for you to let me know in the comments, or via the email page. Of course if you're stinking rich and would like to reward me in some way, you could always buy me something from my Amazon Wish List! ;-) If you aren't stinking rich, you could just use my affiliate links to purchase stuff for yourself from Amazon.co.uk and still give me a small kick-back to offset my hosting costs.
By the way, I moderate any comments on this site, so I'm sorry if something you want to add doesn't appear straight away. I will allow anything that is relevant but I won't allow anything that's blatant spam; either advertising or SEO fodder for some product/site. If you want a boost to your SEO, then you can send me a product to review and I'll link the review back to you.
