Another take on white-box networking, this one as a video paying homage to the +Joel Snyder school of Hawaiian shirts.

Again, I think the days of buying network hardware and software from the same vendor are numbered, at least in the data center.

Way more than Dell buying EMC, I think white-box networking will transform data-center networks the same way BSD/Linux on commodity platforms did for servers 15 years ago. I don't think it will be as transformative in campus networking. What's your take?

My dad, Robert Newman (1930-2007), made documentary films about all kinds of social issues. I’m thrilled to announce that the Internet Archive has digitized his catalog and made it freely available under a Creative Commons license. Please share this post and these films, with attribution.

A lot of the subject matter is still front and center today, such as questions about who gets to vote, how we treat immigrants, and how we run elections.

Besides the timely topics and lyrical photography, great music abounds in these films. There’s Joan Baez singing to migrant workers in “Viva La Causa”; John Moyer’s classical piano in “Open Arms”; Mel Pahl’s marching band in “City of Necessity”; a gospel choir letting go at the end of “Right Now!”; and Eddie Cochran’s records getting Scottish teenagers on the dance floor in “Alf Goes to Work.” 

The Internet Archive is a great resource. Its mission is to be a modern-day Alexandria, digitizing and providing universal access to all materials in the public domain.

Thanks to my mom, Rhoda Newman, for finding one of these films in the National Archive and getting this project started; to +Carl Malamud for connecting me with the Internet Archive folks; to +Brewster Kahle, Jesse Bell, Yvonne Wang, and Michelle Krasowski at the Internet Archive for doing the actual work; and to Jim McQuaid of Turnip Films for his guidance and encouragement.
