Dr. Ed Harrison is a retired IBM Executive, and he was born and bred in St. Anthony's estate in Newcastle, and joined IBM in 1970 after completing a PhD in Computing Science at Newcastle University.
Ed was moved to America in 1973 by IBM with his then new wife Madeline - formerly Madeline Carol Rose of Longbenton- who is also a Geordie.
Ed did well at the American company, and was instrumental in building and managing a $2B Network Consulting business for IBM Global Services, but finally retired back in 2004, and has since concentrated on something really important - Newcastle United.
Ed and Madeline have been married for 41 years, and have three children, twin sons Neil and Paul and daughter Elaine, and they live near their parents in Raleigh, NC.

Nine days I ago I had another battery of medical tests, and the results I received today show my PSA count is still undetectable, which is a good indication the prostate cancer is under control, and there is no trace of cancer in my body.
I am so thankful for that - and this blog will continue for the foreseeable future.

What Is A Football Club?
“What is a club in any case?" “Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it.
It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes."
“It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city."
“It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.”
