One of my HP Discover traditions is to feature the blog posts by our guest bloggers. Given the late nights we had in Frankfurt, I'm kind of shocked that any one had blogs during the event (note to self - don't take the bloggers out for German beer and stay until the place closes if you want them fresh the next morning).
Bloggers' blog posts
I hope I don't leave any out but here are links to the blog posts I've seen so far:

A Few More Worth Mentioning
I noticed more than a couple of blog posts from bloggers we didn't have join us in Frankfurt - a few have attended previous events we've had and a few might find themselves invited to a future event that we host bloggers at. Here are those post:
- Justin Vashisht: HP 3Par StoreServ P7200/7400 announced!
- Gabriel Chapman: Baby 3PAR to the rescue
- Nate at TechOpsGuy.com: 3PAR: The Next Generation (Nate should talk to HP Press about writing a 3PAR for dummies book - not only does he cover the news but does a fantastic job explaining the 3PAR architecture).
- FedTek (looks like a channel partner focused on federal government): HP Converged Infrastructure – Your Ideal Data Center, HP Expands 3PAR Storage Portfolio
- Derek Seaman: HP announces a 3PAR mini-me disk array
- Eric Shanks: HP 3PAR for midrange business
- Andre Carpenter: HP EVA to 3PAR import (a topic that I'll have a video demo tomorrow)
I want to be a blogger too!
I'm proud that we at HP, with our partner Ivy Worldwide, were real trailblazers when it comes to engaging with bloggers focused in IT. We did our first storage HP Tech Day in September 2009. If you look at my blog post, you'll notice that many of the indie bloggers that came to that event now work for a vendor.
I sent a note out on Twitter tonight asking if you're interested in attending a future HP Tech Day or event (like HP Discover) as an independent blogger, let me know. HP pays most of your travel expenses to join us and we try to give you unique content and access to experts that you probably won't get very often. So I'll make the same offer here - especially if you're interested in storage, drop me a line and let me know you're interested and who knows - we might have you at our next event!
