Stace has been performing computer consulting since the early 1980s, as well as working all levels of Information Services for both the public and private sectors.  He prefers the term Information Services to Information Technology, because computer support is a service-based industry; when the emphasis is on technology, the service aspect tends to be overshadowed.  Technology may be the linchpin of the industry, but technology without good service and support can be a liability. In his day job, Stace works for Adams County 911 in Colorado.
