Next week in Ft. Collins, Colorado, we'll gather with around 11 independent bloggers to do another HP Storage Tech Day. It's been a while since I've done a storage focused Tech Day and I'm looking forward to it. Over the two days, the bloggers coming will hear about Converged Storage and other related storage topics. I'm working with our technical marketing team to have a couple of "hands-on-labs" so the bloggers can see HP LeftHand and HP 3PAR in action.
Here's who is coming (name, twitter ID, blog URL):
- Alastair Cooke, @DemitasseNZ, www.demitasse.co.nz
- Brian Knudtson, @bknudtson, www.knudt.net/vblog
- Ray Lucchesi, @raylucchesi, www.silvertonconsulting.com/blog
- Howard Marks, @DeepStorageNet, deepstorage.net/WP-Save & NetworkComputing blog
- John Obeto, @johnobeto, absolutelywindows.com
- Justin Paul, @recklessop, jpaul.me
- Jeffery Powers, @geekazine, www.geekazine.com
- Derek Schauland, @webjunkie, techhelp.cybercreations.net
- Rick Schlander, @vmrick, vmbulletin.com
- Justin Vashisht, @3cVguy, 3cvguy.com
- Matt Vogt, @mattvogt, mattvogt.posterous.com
I have two really easy ways for you to follow and join the conversations next week:
- I created a list of the bloggers coming as well as a few HP people and you can follow what that group says. You have to be a member of Twitter to see .
- We'll also use the hashtag #HPTechDay for our event. You can follow all the tweets using this hashtag. You don't need to be a member of Twitter to see this.
We're also hoping to live stream the event with the help of the bloggers (got my fingers crossed Jeffery!) - I'll let you know both on Twitter and here on ATSB if we are able to get that going. I also hope to have some real-time blogs (with the help of folks that will take notes for me) - basically, the next best thing to being there will be to keep watching ATSB. I'll also include links to the bloggers posts. I sure hope they post something - LOL!
While I've met most of the guys coming, only Jeffery has been to a storage Tech Day, so I'm looking forward to having this group of bloggers at HP.
Have a great weekend!
