Who do I follow


I thought I’d do a quick post on who I follow on twitter and why.  These are some of the main sources of material for the site outside of my own little brain. 

vExpert-2013

This list has become my primary RSS replacement.  Most of these guys/gals have very similar interests as mine not just in virtualization but also secondary stuff.

@gigabarb

I discovered Barbara Darrow via GigaOM.com a while back.  She’s a journalist and focuses on Cloud computing.  She also posts a lot of non-GigaOM posts as well.  I do have to suffer from her bad taste in sports teams.  But it’s worth it.

@scott_lowe

Well he’s Scott Lowe, author of Mastering vSphere 5.0 and a virtual networking expert.

@silentlennie

Lennie is a regular commentor on my blog.  He’s actually a valuable source of deep tech material and videos.  It amazes me how much video material he consumes.

@hui_ken

Formally VCE_Ken.  Ken Hui is a new Racker and former employee of VCE but he really doesn’t have a strong alliance to anything but OpenStack.  Ken is a great resource to get deep dives and an introduction to OpenStack.  He’s also a great intersection between OpenStack and VMware.

The Geek Whispers

Amy Lewis (@comms_ninja) is all about Unicorns, Bacon and Cisco Marketing.  She hosts the Geek Whispers podcast along with John Troyer (@jtroyer) and Matthew Brender (@mjbrender).  I’ve gotten a ton of great branding advice from these three over the past few months.  Great tech content from their twitter feeds along with the branding/blogging tips.

There are others but the vExpert list kind of collapsed it all for me outside of a couple of folks that aren’t vExperts.

Hope this helps you get a little closer to my material source.
