I would love to have Matthew's book. (Ok, did I win already?) =)

I come from the technical area.

I am wondering how to tackle upcoming new technologies on the point of view of a technical guy (if you think management is eventually going to be included, please mention too).

Hardware gets improved consistently, and so does the software on top of it.

Any tips on how to handle these always changing I.T. map, as a career person, to keep my job basically?

Jesus,

You are already a winner in my book Jesus - even if you didn't win the book yet.. :-D

My advice.. keep your head up. What I mean by that is, while you may be focusing on a given technology at your company, spend a little time each week/month looking into new technologies. This might mean, building your own projects on the side. However, if you can find a need at your company - one that is less mission critical, perhaps management will allow you to allocate a little time in that area each week/month.

Google is famous for doing this as part of people's jobs. They get a sandbox project that they are "required" to work on. Often, these projects become products down the road.
