Why a blog?

In an outbreak of random motivation, I've decided to start keeping a blog. The main goal is to help me keep track of the various things I'm attempting to learn about, most of which are technological. If this ends up being useful to other people, then so much the better.

Things that interest me, and will be covered at some point (I hope):
  • IT infrastructure
  • Data networks
  • UNIX/Linux/BSD
  • Scalability
  • High availability
  • Managing large environments
For another perspective, behold my bookshelf of 'stuff to read', as of a year ago. (Some of these have been read now - once I source a new camera, I shall post an updated photo.)

    2. mirroimage: I was going to write a brief post detailing my work experience and how exactly I got into the role I'm in now... only to find that the folks over at sysadvent beat me to it!
