  • Heavily focused on InteropITX presentations this month. I am speaking at the Future Of Networking Summit as one of the co-chairs, and that saddles me with over 3 hours of content to generate. I settled on a slide format that feels authentic. That is, I love whiteboards. I spent most of my career with large whiteboards and markers, sketching out ideas and diagramming network topologies. I found a slide format that, coupled with hand-drawn sketches on my iPad, brings that feeling back. I suppose the novelty of the approach will have worn off after 3+ hours, but it’s what I’m going with for this year.
