About Me

Who are you?

 Eternal Optimist<– My name is Pamela Dingle. I am a Senior Technical Architect at Ping Identity.  I work in the office of the CTO and I get paid to learn and know about existing and emerging trends and technologies, to understand customer concerns, to speak and blog and to geek out on SAML, OAuth, OpenID Connect, and other cool things.  It’s the best job ever.


Are you sure you’re an Optimist??

As much as I like to rant, I do so because I think  that the world can be a better place.  We just have to figure out how to make it happen.

Why should we care what YOU think?

Feel free to care or not. I’m just enjoying this whole blogging thing.

What else should we know?

I am a geek. I am Canadian. I am a programmer by education, and a UNIX sys-admin by early training. I was an Enterprise identity systems integrator and architect for years before joining Ping Identity.  I have been known to play a certain field game which involves a disc (aka a frisbee).  In my spare time I scrape paint and renovate things and take photos that I never remember to publish anywhere, except sometimes here or on Flickr.  You can follow me on Twitter as @pamelarosiedee.

  1. Hi Pam,

    I just added you to my blogroll list. I’m working on infocard stuff myself and was interested in knowing if you’d like to “collaborate”

    Pam says:

    I’m in! Will drop you an email…

  2. Hey Pringle ;o) long time no chat…we’ll have to catch up soon. Awesome to see an old colleague getting some light, hope things are well with you and your geekdom. Heheh.

    Long live number 56 and pho!


    Pam says:  howdy stranger!!  I’m so glad to hear from you, I had no contact info!  We miss you in Calgary, you need to come back.   I’ll drop you an email…

  3. We start where we find
    ourselves, at this time and place.

    Which is always the crossing of roads
    that began beyond the earth’s curve
    but whose destination we can now alter.

    This is a public saying to all my friends
    that we want to stay together. We want
    to share our lives. We mean to pledge
    ourselves through times of broken stone
    and seasons of rose and ripe plum;
    we have found out, we know, we want to continue.
    (with thanks to Marge Piercy for the sentiment and fine poetry!)

    Lost you for too long – but am quite please to discover you blogified :-) I miss Calgary! Houston is too hot!

  4. Hello Pam. Long long time no see. I’m Still in Toronto – I was wondering what you were about these days.

    Obviously you are doing well, and seemingly have growed up real good.

    I’m still a cynical optimist, so have some hope you’ll say hello, even though we haven’t spoken since 92.

    Cheers to you

    Dave (with the multi-colored volvo…)
