How much is the right amount to tweet?

Trends in the Living Networks

Of the many issues when engaging on social media, one of the most central is how much to post. If you don’t post enough, you’re barely visible. If you post too much, you annoy people who are likely to unfollow you, and you make any individual post far less likely to be seen or acted on.

A short while ago I posted an article that described how to use Puppet for account management. In that article, I showed you how to use virtual user resources to manage user accounts on Puppet-managed systems.

Is Cloud trying to pull one over on business?

Virtualized Greek

This article on shadow Cloud computing and the gap between business leaders and IT over on ZDNet (yes ZDNet) got me thinking about if business managers understand what they are asking for when they look to a Cloud solution. I’ve gotten the impression that business leaders think Cloud solutions are some kind of magic bullet that both reduces costs and enabled the business without as much upfront development effort as traditional in-house solutions.

I asked the question 2 months ago. Is VMware headed for a slow death? Their stock is down 21% today on adjusted revenue guidance. Their CTO is leaving and they’ve changed directions on PaaS vs. IaaS. The Hypervisor will become a commodity in 2013 and the future of Cloud is Platform as a Service not Infrastructure as a Service. I’m going to really be watching the next few quarters.
