Hi, sticking my nose into anything I possibly can, then budgeting
2-3 hours per week reading about it. It's possible I have 4-5 hours of train
ride each week.

It's also easier because I'm fortunate in that the company and department
I'm in is in the middle of the fray..that's one advantage in documenting an
Enterprise Integration's in the middle by definition.

How do I learn about what I'm seeing? I have a stack of books, ready to fall
over, at least one for every technology I'm involved with. (Remind me to
take the 3 "Bibles" off the stack built on top of the C++ Pocket Book)
