The Friday Abstract: Who am I?

Here is a brain teaser that should keep you thinking all through the weekend. Well, I hope so, anyway. It certainly has kept me thinking for a long, long time.

Who am I?

I have a Master of Library and Information Science degree, but I've never worked in a library (though the only time I worked for a library, I worked from home).

I worked in an archives alongside archivists and records managers; I've implemented software and hardware solutions in archives; re-designed websites and conducted research on behalf of archives. But I can count on my hands and toes the number of times I actually accessioned a box of records or personal manuscripts.

I work with technology--the Web and its many uses come easy to me--but I am hardly a technologist or guru. I do excellent work. Former employers are more than pleased.

I work on contract, and once a contract ends, I am back to square one all over again.

Who am I?
