    Rolling Coal: "Clean Diesel" is an Oxymoron

    in Politics Conservative

    Here are tenight's topics for discussion:

    The Volkswagen Fraud: Let's face it. Diesel engines stink—literally. Why did Volkswagen take the risk? How  did they get away with it for so long? What deos the Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA) have to do with this?

    Hillary's Server: There is a lot of misinformation going around. What was Clinton's motivation for a "private" server? What is the difference between a private server and a private email address? What cyber attacks were used? What is the FBI investigation really looking for? What are the security implications? At this point, what can the FBI learn?

    The USA is a Third World Nation: Like the proverbial frog in a boiling pot, change—or lack of change—has happened so gradually that much has gone unnuticed. Nevertheless, we are becoming more and more like Obama's ideal country.

    Another Mass Shooting: It's too early to speculate about this one. Obama's reaction was predictable.

    RINOs: Will business as usual continue in Congress? Is it time for a government "shutdown?"

    Interop Radio: The Network Beyond SDN

    in Technology

    If you follow the enterprise networking press (and really, why wouldn't you?) then you would be excused for thinking that SDN is the only thing that matters in the world of moving bits from place to place. The truth, though, is that the vast majority of networks deployed today are still defined by switches, routers, and old-fashioned configuration methods rather than by software.

    In this episode of Interop Radio we'll be talking about all the networks that aren't SDN and why these "traditional" networks are still important -- and still evolving. Our guest, Ethan Banks, is co-host of the popular Packet Pushers Podcast and a speaker in the conference at Interop Las Vegas. What sort of thing might we discuss? We could start with one of these:

    Improving communications between IT & business stakeholders.
    IPv6 - coming of age, finally?
    Should your network mirror cloud scale architecture?
    Troubleshooting skills matter more than ever for networkers.

    Ethan Banks, CCIE #20655, has been managing networks for higher ed, government, financials, high tech, and medical since 1995. Ethan co-hosts the Packet Pushers Podcast, which has seen millions of downloads and reaches over 10K listeners worldwide.

    Interop 2015 will take place from April 27th through May 1st at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV. More information and registration details are available online!
