Although New England ought to win that big football game, they’re losing when it comes to innovation and technology.

As for Tech Field Day, look for us to return to Silicon Valley for seven of our nine full events in 2015. At least now you know why!
The Building Virtual Infrastructure seminar series has been better than i could have hoped, with my Atlanta and Los Angeles dates packed with enthusiastic folks I’d never met before. For Boston, I’ve dramatically revamped the seminar content, hoping better to illustrate my points.
A guy walks to the back of the second floor, pulls a brand-new iPhone bumper off the shelf, fiddles with his iPhone, opens the package at one of the yellow wood tables, fits the bumper to his phone, and walks out of the store.

I’ve been quite busy lately recording webinars, writing articles, and setting up speaking events. This week, I’m in Boston and New York for private speaking engagements. I’ll also be recording a webinar with an exciting new storage/virtualization company, Nutanix, and I urge you to tune in to that one!
A few weeks from now, I will head off to Boston for a special event focused entirely on server virtualization. Tech Field Day 6 brings together so many great things that it’s hard for me to summarize it!
