It’s been a while now since I’ve been able to give blogging (or anything) my full attention. For the last five months I’ve mostly been in the San Francisco Bay Area helping my employer establish a US presence. Ironically, I’ve been staying just a few miles from Palo Alto and certainly close enough to the Moscone Center to have attended VMworld had I still been out there. Alas, it wasn’t to be. I’m very jealous of my fellow LonVMUG members, the many other vExperts I’m fortunate to have spoken with and everyone else going as well. Make the most of it!
Keeping on top of things whilst your family is over 5000 miles away isn’t easy and so I haven’t had the opportunity to write as much as I would want to. But now I’m back and it’s time to pick up where I left off. I have a few half-written posts to try and pick up and a fair few ideas that I’ve had for other things too.
Before I get started, here are a few of the non-work highlights of my time in California:
Michael Poore is a Senior Consultant for Virtual Clarity, a small virtualisation / cloud consultancy based in London and San Francisco.
