I've started a column in ACM Queue magazine called "Everything Sysadmin" (guess where I got the idea for the name?). It will appear 3 times a year.
The first column is titled, "Automation Should Be Like Iron Man, Not Ultron".
Queue is free to ACM members (use your ACM account username/password). You can purchase a 1-year subscription for $19.99 or buy a single issue for $6.99.
To read the issue online or via the Queue App (iPhone and Android), go here: http://queue.acm.org/app/landing.cfm
