Help with my job title...

A few months ago I changed jobs. With my old job, a title was easy because it was almost 100% web development. My new job has a lot of the same, but being the only tech guy here, I have additional duties as well. My additional responsibilities include product recomendations when we need something new, helping people when there are problems, making sure the network infrastructure is working, and whatever else that comes up in the realm of technology.

Since I am the first to hold this position, I can call it what I want.

Sounds like what I do and my title is Manager of Information Technology.

Of course I just go by IT Manager.

"Computer Nerd" probably the best word... but I'll go for IT Manager as BeanDip suggested.

See if you can get away with being called the CIO. Looks great on the resume!

"Superman" rolls off the tongue quite nicely.

If the title is approved, buy a cape.

CTO assumes there are other technology personnel, which there apparently aren't.
