- First Global CCIE Survey Forecasts Growth in Virtualization, Security and Collaboration -> Cisco News – Convenient Cisco approved marketing message here with nothing useful. matches the current marketing strategy to the letter. To whit, Virtualisation, Data Centre, Unified Comms, Teleconference and Green. Add some positive stroking
Eighty percent are very or extremely satisfied with their career choice and 40 percent report that they have been involved in the design and implementation of a networking project that improved the lives and welfare of citizens within their community.
And there we have the “company line”. Safe, boring, tedious and predictable marketing crap disguised as a survey of Cisco's most valuable customers. Insult to your intelligence. Elevator pitch is not needed.
- NANOG Presention – RBridges and the IETF TRILL Protocol – Donald Eastlake presentation introducing TRILL and RBridges at NANOG 48 (Mar 2010).

- A Poem on a “CCIE-to-be” from my Wife (via Pete’s Packet) –
We could better discuss and plan OUR future,
but no! he’s more interested in MPLS architecture,
I love him with all my heart and body and soul,
but he has eyes only for the routing protocol,
I wish my wife would write about my work like that.

If you look real close, you can see that one end of a 1D shape has an ìxî and the other end has a ì+î. This is important for identifying the official Begin of the shape and the official End of the shape.
Dang, I never noticed that before.
