- Proposal for VEPA and VEB – Presentation to the IEEE on VEPA and VEB by Paul Condon. Ignore anything to do with MACsec as this wasn't used in the end.
- Get Ready for VEPA in the Data Center | CTO Edge –
Last November the IEEE 802.1Qbg working group came together in Atlanta to present the latest developments for the Virtual Ethernet Port Aggregator (VEPA), as well as other related technologies, such as Virtual Ethernet Bridging (VEB), not to be confused with Edge Virtual Bridging (EVB). There were more than two dozen contributors including all the heavy hitters, such as Cisco, Dell, EMC, HP and IBM.
More data center ethernet standards from the IEEE that you have never heard of.
- Buzz Kill : LOL: The Life of Leo –
Social media, I gave you the best years of my life, but never again. I know where I am wanted. Screw you Google Buzz. You broke my heart.
Although I use Twitter, it's an uncomfortable relationship. I continue to focus on the blog, not twitter – because no one really listens to you on twitter.

What's New in Cisco Product Documentation – July 2010
Surprisingly, quite a bit. NX7K V5 of NXOS finally shipped (better late than never). DCNM got revved too. Documentation updates for CSACS 5.1 and CSM 4.0. Cisco hasn't forgotten about the enterprise in it's endless pursuit of video content.
- Community String » CCIE R&S Reading List –
The official CCIE Book List by Cisco is mental, I don’t think its really practical to read through the entire list in any reasonable amount of time.
Disagree, you should read as much as possible, even if it's only as a break from lab time.
- Free CCNA Workbook – What's not to like. Jeremy at Packet Life recommends it, so I will too.
- Friday Funny: Security Cam Pranks and Miscues « Data Center Knowledge –
While data center security cameras are meant to record potential issues in the facility, sometimes the video catches more amusing moments. Here’s a few moments — staff behaving badly or pulling pranks on each other — that gave us a chuckle. Enjoy
- Scott Adams Blog: The Less Feature 08/20/2010 –
One of my local movie theaters just added the option of special seats that move in sync with the action on screen. Now every time I want to see a movie with friends, I need to poll everyone to see what sort of seat they want. Worse yet, another nearby theater offers dinner with movies. It won't be long before planning a movie will take more time than the movie itself.
Let me say it again: World, I'll pay extra if you will please give me less.
Same applies to corporate technology, too much choice makes decisions difficult. I want a product that works not comes in ten colours.
