A think piece on the effect of consumerisation in the datacentre, it ends looking at consumer market share battles and asking why the ISPs care about brand; I suppose it’s because consumer sales organisations like Apple and Google, to preserve their brand value are dis-intermediating the Telcos and NEPs/system vendors from the supply chain.

This post starts as a puff for Sun’s Storage Solution and segues to a crack at Digg. Glenn Brunnette pointed this Youtube Video out to me, with Brendan Gregg shouting at a disk unit.
I have now finished the demo, and it remains good looking and still seems to be a story rich, puzzle, travel and discovery game. The puzzles can be quite simple and at times quite linear; you can only do the right thing. I was also frustrated that objects only become usable as the story unfolds to require them, you can’t clear a room. I am not sure if we’ll buy it. See also the previous blog post Nicopolis, and Other Games at this site, which have links to the demo and author sites.
