Welcome! I am Jason O’Donnell.
You can find pointers to my online presences at www.acdntlpoet.com or in the footer of this blog. Feel free to follow me if you feel so inclined. I use the AcdntlPoet alias across most all of my accounts.
Most of my actual content and everything you would need to know about me can be found on either of my two main websites:
Professionally, I am currently the IBM Support Content Strategist in the IBM Center for Support Excellence where I continue transforming the client experience and deliver industry-leading content strategies across all IBM Support business units.
Previously I was the IBM Watson Internet of Things and IBM Rational Support Social Business Program Manager. I co-authored both the Notes from Rational Support and the Notes from IBM IoT Support blogs, and curated the IBM Rational Support and IBMIoTSupport Twitter accounts and YouTube pages. Any and all posts I make are mine and do not necessarily reflect any official IBM policy, opinion, or position. Read more about the guidelines that I follow at IBM’s Social Computing Guidelines.
I am also a whiskies enthusiast. As part of my love for the dram I am deeply involved as one of the co-founders of the 3 Drunken Celts’ tasting group. My involvement there also lead me to create my own expressions as a former co-owner / chief distiller of Tualatin Valley Distilling, LLC, a now closed nano craft distillery in Hillsboro, Oregon.
I ride a motorcycle for fun and transport. I work hard and play harder. I am obdurate, sardonic, and heavily opinionated… except when I’m not. I wantonly abuse ellipses and have a deep love for the serial comma.
