The Small Wave is a blog of technology thoughts written by Tom Reestman (email). I’ve also written for GigaOM Research and GigaOM’s Apple channel. I’m active on Twitter, less so on Instagram, and occasionally post random thoughts on The Small Wave 2.


My experience includes release engineering, product support and QA for both software and hardware, and professional services for software implementations and training. I’ve worked on mainframe, minicomputer, Windows PC/server, Mac, and UNIX systems. Along the way I’ve been a network administrator, project manager, client services director, and worn many other hats. This diverse background shapes my technology views.
