The Small Wave is a technology blog written by Tom Reestman (email). I also wrote 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, software and hardware product support/QA, 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.
