A week or two ago, Ramblings had a birthday and I forgot to throw a party. Yep, this website turned six years old this May, and I needed folks liking the automated LinkedIn 'work anniversary' notice to remind me of the date. Here's a big THANK YOU to everyone who has helped this site survive and thrive, whether as a sponsor, as a reader and commenter, retweeter, etc.
Six years, a.k.a. two tech lifetimes. I'd say I need to update things a bit this summer.
I have in mind a new theme with better differentiation between commentary, analysis, and news than I have done so far. I would also like to find ways to better blend the comments left with a forum kind of atmosphere to better foster conversations.
In terms of subject matter, I think I need to find some way to track the cloud services and data center spaces in a way that parallels what I've tried to do with fiber over the years. And mobile is something I need to delve deeper into in many ways.
But I'm very much open to other suggestions on how to make Ramblings even better going forward. So as you go off into the long Memorial Day weekend, speak your mind about where Ramblings should go next. Leave a comment, or send me an email if you prefer to keep it offline.
