Submission + - Best practices for fiber channel networks?

GaryOlson writes: "White papers and tech docs on fiber channel storage cover the basics such as creating aliases, zones, labeling cables, etc. But what about best practices and methods for nebulous operations like managing zonesets, VSANs, or port channel groups? Are these subjects too closely tied to a specific business operation or vendor technology to define best practices?"

Submission + - Thank an Engineer

GaryOlson writes: "A little something TI is sending to its friends:
Check out the premiere of the "Thank an Engineer" short video series from Texas Instruments. These short spoofs demonstrate what the world would be like without the many engineering marvels you've been a part of creating.

We, at TI, wanted to send a quick "Thanks" your way and maybe get a laugh out of you while we were at it. And if you don't like them, well you can just ... give us a better idea and you just might win one of ten flip video cameras we're giving away by the end of the year!

Submission + - The Internet as WorldBeam

GaryOlson writes: "Forbes Special Report focuses on The Power of Networks. Included with articles by Networking Pioneers and a new media Internet billionaire, an academic intruduces us to a new metaphor for the Internet as a WorldBeam". The basic architecural design is summarized "The Worldbeam and another design construct, the Empty Computer, go hand in hand." and "Many sorts of information are blended together in the Worldbeam, just as many colors are combined into a beam of white light."

I am just wondering if that beam will be coherent enough to be useful.

Function reject.
