Sys Admin Day

Who am I?

My name is Dann Thomas. I started my first IT company back in 1997 and I started the UK chapter of System Administrator Appreciation Day in 2003. I was inspired by Ted Kekatos who in 2000 was himself inspired to create the special day by a Hewlett-Packard magazine advertisement in which a system administrator is presented with flowers and fruit-baskets by grateful co-workers as thanks for installing new printers.
