And I love the work Dave McCrory is doing on exploring notions of data gravity ...

There are no shortage of IT organizations that are going through a big transformation, but it's not everyone.  In this post, I share what I've learned about how to identify between those that are, and those that aren't.

Context is everything for me.  Facts by themselves aren't that interesting -- unless they're woven into a broader tapestry.  

Here is that thought writ large: a quick history of humankind from an informationist's perspective.

I enjoy tracking what some of EMC's competitors are doing in key areas of technology.  NetApp was making a bunch of noise around a new version of  their software, and I decided to dig in a bit deeper.

The post turned out to be amazingly popular.  Even though I was subject to withering personal criticism by the fanbois crowd, no one ever came back and even hinted that anything here was incorrect in the least.

There's more gory detail behind this if you're interested, but I think I shared enough that most tech professionals will be armed to ask the right questions.

Practical advice for the CIO who "gets" the big data analytics thing, and is figuring out what to do about it.

In some ways, usage of such pattern analysis in predicting the future seems to be dangerously close to the oft derogated realm of 'astrology'.

Tools are only as good as the people using them, or so I've found

Quantum entanglement research takes another small step forward.
Abstract. Entanglement is the essential feature of quantum mechanics. Notably, observers of two or more entangled particles will find correlations in their measurement results that cannot be explained...

One thing I have always believed, that science has ignored, is that when humanity has a strong enough desire to reach the unreachable, God helps a bit. It gives the human mind an unquenchable thirst to seek answers, and in time, we do. We evolve when our solutions are past, into new and exciting possibilities, so never fear not understanding nothing is impossible.
  In the long term, I suggest developing probes to seek out sustainable planets, as we are using Earth up at pace that even quantum physics find hard to predict. We must work for humanities future and save all we have accomplished of our past.

Enterprise mobility is turning out to be a far bigger and more interesting topic than simply re-platforming your desktop world on mobile devies.  This topic shows every sign of being a huge one for the enterprise IT crowd in 2013 and beyond.

I am fascinated by industries in transition, and healthcare in the US is a really big industry going through a really big transition.  I used this post to hammer out my personal talk-track around what's going on, and what it means for CIOs in the healthcare provider space.

Note: this is not a quick read.

One of the less-glamorous -- but ultimately important -- announcements from our friends at VMware

We discover a new tool, and it takes some time to wrap our heads around what it does.  Big data analytics is no exception.

Gee, I thought this was a reasonably original thought when I wrote it.  Turns out it's been explored before.  Consider this my addition to the community discussion.

We needed minor repairs for our roof. Gave them a call, Isaac came over, took a thorough look and gave us a reasonable estimate. They showed up as scheduled, did the work, took photos of before and after, and cleaned up thoroughly. I was pleased to pay them promptly. We now need some more expensive structural repairs, and -- once again -- we're using Panda. Nice people, professional work. The only caveat is that they can get busy at times, which means delays in getting back to you unless it's an emergency. Other than that, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them here in Vero.

We've been 12 times. We love it. Consistently great food, great service and great ambiance at a reasonable price. Haven't found anything as good in the area.
