Tim Hibbard CEO for EnGraph software

Sahil Malik reenforces what I have been telling Kyle (my boss) for years. 20% of my time should be spent doing research. For me this includes reading blogs about technology, creating test apps using new technology and reading books.

I am constantly finding new ways to do things and as time permits, I go into our old code and refactor it to make it faster and more efficient. This makes me a stronger asset to EnGraph, makes our applications better and keeps the daily 9-6 fun for me.

Very Cool. Hey Kyle how u doin', nice 2 meet u.

I must say though that not all bosses have the luxury of sparing 20% of paid time towards research - I think google does that though. I do most of my research in off hours - after work. I do have a gripe with folks who comandeer your off hours for business needs.

Anyway, glad you're spending your time on teaching yourself new stuff. Do share your knowledge when you learn new stuff. :)

EnGraph is a very unique organization. I rely on Tim to keep me and himself on top of the tech world. There is a fine line between accomplishment and knowledge.
