New AMT Blog -- Technically Speaking

March 3, 2006
This is the first posting by Joe Escobar in the new blog Technically Speaking.

Welcome to the new AMT blog Technically Speaking. This is an exciting step for us. One of my favorite assignments each month is writing my Editor's column in AMT. I get to address current topics and get fellow mechanics thinking about issues of interest to our profession. I also truly enjoy the feedback that you provide in letters to the editor about something discussed in my column.

So now it's time to catch up to the 21st century. Think of this as a web-based editorial column. But instead of waiting for the next issue of AMT to read what I will talk about, you can log onto our website. I can now rant and rave on a regular basis. In addition, you can provide feedback and thoughts and have your comments posted online. To do that, just use the tool at the bottom of the page. Once OK'd by our editorial team (to ensure no verbal malfunctions have occurred) it will be posted with the blog entry.

I have always said that I rely on reader feedback to keep AMT magazine on-course. The same goes for this blog. If you have a topic you would like me to discuss, let me know. Just e-mail me at [email protected].

And be sure to check back on a regular basis. I will make frequent posts on issues that affect our profession. You never know what I will talk about or what your fellow mechanics will be saying in response!

Thanks for reading, and here's to making the most out of this new resource from AMT.

P.S. I am currently evaluating a tool that was sent to us for a product evaluation. Stay tuned for my product review in an upcoming blog posting.
