My ramblings on the stuff that holds it all together
Find all the Good v12n Posts every Week
If cast my mind back 2 or 3 years, finding good VMware related information on the web was hard, there were 2 or 3 good technical blogs (RTFM, Scott Lowe, Eric Sloof) and there was 1 book by Ron Oglesby/Mike Laverick but that was pretty much it.
Since then things have come along leaps and bounds, the Planet v12n list that VMware maintains aggregates all the good virtualization blogs into one place for easy digestion (RSS feed here) but this now tracks a large number of bloggers (myself included).
It’s almost like you need someone to cherry-pick the vast number of weekly posts, on ooh. say a weekly basis?
Well, have no fear – for some time VCDX007 (Duncan Epping) has been doing the hard work for you and picking the top 5 v12n posts on a weekly basis, usually published on a Sunday you can find the list here on the VMTN blog, I’m pleased to say I’ve made this list a few times now for various blog posts.
I’ve deliberately left twitter out of this (follow me here if you wish), as long-form blog posts are more my kind of thing; Twitter is ok for general chit-chat and quick Q&A but it’s a lot to keep on top of, and do a day job! – But if Twitter is your thing – Maish has a twitter list of the top-25 v12n Bloggers (based on Eric’s list – I’m at number 53, thanks to everyone that voted for me :))
And, just in case you were wondering; v12n is a numeronym for virtualization (yes, I had to look that one up :))
