Quoting myself:

CIOs and IT Managers: Are you willing to adopt virtualization now?

2000: I have been evangelizing virtualization since 2000. I still remember carrying my old Dell laptop with 128mb memory and running Oracle 8.0 on Redhat 8.0 on VMware Workstation. I have consulted about VMware and around VMware ever since. But it was then a way too new technology. My director back then was really excited about it. He really adopted it! He liked the idea that I didn't have to order another laptop just because I could do it INSIDE my laptop!

2005: I went evangelizing virtualization as it needed more visibility. I launched my blog on virtualization. I still met a lot of "traditional" arguments. Still I was also able to help adopt a lot of CTOs and CIOs, who sought my advice. I went on to evaluate their products and the virtualization market was getting warmer...

Check it out and I urge you to comment. Thanks a lot!

Redhot Future Of IT Part I :Marketing yourself as IT professional

I had promised about the "RedHot IT Future Series" and so we discuss here how you should market yourself EFFECTIVELY as an IT professional in this new (and dangerous) web age! Web is the place where you're a hero today and villain tomorrow. While there are lots of professionals who are active on the web, not all are enjoying a good reputation as they got "personal" with others and got into a cockfight. The passive IT professional has nothing to lose but nothing to gain at all!

I know "marketing" might seem as a greasy term but the idea is to have the truth about you out there. You know you're a good person and your family knows that you're really smart person but the rest of the world doesn't!

So the question is how do I market myself on the web as a true "nouveau IT professional". A guy who companies will be tempted to pick up the phone as say "Hey, we wanna talk with you. Can you fly over to Palo Alto (or Guatemala or Johan…
