Any list of networking blogs arguably has to start with EtherealMind, which is penned by Greg Ferro, a network architect and engineer working out of the UK. A Network Computing contributor, Greg pioneered the networking blog and also is widely known for his weekly Packet Pushers Podcast. In fact, at Interop in Las Vegas earlier this year, one of his sessions, "How to Be a Tech Blogger," attracted an overflow crowd. His successful formula combines extensive experience with a sense of humor and refreshingly candid opinions.
At Interop New York, Greg will hold a half-day workshop, "Faster, Cheaper, More Flexible: The Next-Generation WAN," that examines the future of the WAN and looks at next-generation technologies such as cloud-based WANs and WAN as a service. He'll also lead a workshop, "Building the Physical Network for the Software-Defined Data Center," and a session, "How the Software-Defined WAN Changes Everything for the Better."
