Learning Curve Rambling Post

I've been a bit quiet on here the last few weeks. I have had three drafts in my queue of things to write about but just haven't figured out how to put my thoughts into words yet. I've been trying to build up my personal understanding of FC, FCoE, iSCSI, Datacenter, and most of all NetApp and I keep coming up on "you don't know what you don't know". I like to think of myself as a pretty smart guy, but I don't know everything and am always interested in learning more. That was one of the points of doing this blog. This was a place to learn for everyone. Being new to the whole blogging thing, I'm just having some issues finding the time to break down these concepts that I want to talk about as well as throw in new things that are announced by NetApp, Cisco, and VMware. I'm not trying to replace the ton of great blogs and bloggers out there. I'm trying to find my own voice in this also. Stick with me and I think we will have an amazing time growing this out into something, but also be patient with me while I learn the whole process myself.

Thanks for the understanding and letting me put down some thoughts. Every posts is a learning experience and when I am hoping to get better at these things.

Next up.....I will get into my FC Basics stuff again soon. I want to do a Flash (E Series and FlashRay) post and a Big Data post that I have had in mind for the last two weeks so look out for them. Holidays may eat up my time, or give me the time while family is distracted to work on these posts and get them out there.

Also, keep an eye out for NetApp Geek and his upcoming launch announcement. I'm on pins and needles to see what it is!

Finally, NetApp Insight EMEA is coming up next week in Ireland. I'm so disappointed that I can't go out there for that. The NetApp Insight Americas was amazing and I hope everyone going to EMEA is safe traveling and has a great time learning and connecting. The NetApp community is a great community and we are just getting bigger and better.
