Virtualization, Dell and Consumerism

Thinking of how Dell is penetrating into the consumer segment, reminds me of my Fe 10 2007 post:

But if you look at the consumer, you'll find yourself in a huge sea of unmeasurable but endless possibilities. Mass commoditization is the mantra but achieving it or pushing it too hard too early is the danger. But the consumerism (people blogging, people deciding , people influencing the developments) is on the rise. Its a massive market space. Look at the mobile telephone market. Its huge. Apple wants to have 1% of that share and its already considered to be too ambitious by some. Anyways they have got the guts to go for it.
Search on my blog for "Virtualization consumerism", here let me do it or you, or go directly to the link

Somehow Dell know how to reach all these markets, it just knows. Like it did back then and Michael knows that he knows it. They will bring the hypervisor to your PC. All kinds of hypervisors to your PC. Dekstop virtualization will become a reality, although not really a ig fan of "Thick or Fat Virtualiation clients" myself, I do see that the consumers has tasted blood; they want all OSs on one PC, be it Mac Tiger, Visat, Ubuntu, they want it all on one!

I have written many insightful, IMHO, ideas about Virtualization, and since you all have kind of woken up by the market, I'll point you time to time to my older articles.

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…

Redhot Future Of IT Part 2 :Virtualized Workplaces

Click on the title to hear what I have to say, alternatively click here to listen to what I have to say here.

So what is a virtualized workplace? Does it mean it does not exist? That it's virtual? Well in a certain way YES. This is where the future of our workplace is going to be. Well it is already a reality in some countries.

OK lets start by asking ourselves these questions:
Do you really bond with your colleagues? (think Team cohesiveness)
Do you spend great amount of hours talking about great things that you will do together? (think collaboration)
Do you really feel that you give 100% at work? (think effectiveness)
What do you really miss at your desk? (think personalization)
Is your desk comfortable enough? (Again think optimizing personalization, OK you have done your best to make it your place)Does it really matter to your employer that you are there for him/her? (think commitment)
Or do you get micromanaged over petty issues? (think mismanagement)
Do you see your employees perfor…

A Collection of Threnodies : Part 1

Whale Fall

Dress me up in my new threads
clasp my greasy palms
grease my hair
I'm ready for the fall

Watch at all the decadence
watching the avalanche
I'm slipping down
losing my buoyancy

What's become of us
where have we come
this far, this close
close to the doors

I hear them, sublimal chants
I'm on the run
I race through the human sea
I am the king!

I'm the slave
to my own undoings
I'm the jester in my courtyard
We jest as we run

We're strolling on that thin rope
we grope as we rope
we're true heros
we're the survivors

we're the scavengers
we're the friends
we're the lovers
we're the unbred

Soon awaiting the fall
we're lurking on us
we're osedaxing us
we're soon going to be done
we'll soon be arrested

*osedax(bone devourer, newly discovered marine genus) feeds on a fallen(sunken) whale carcass(which is also called a whale fall). Read more here
