Getting to know (you)
By John Clingan-Oracle on Nov 18, 2004
Immersion Week was fun. We are all getting "immersed" to uplevel our knowledge to some base level. We all have depth in one area or another, but this was a level-setting event for areas we haven't had time to spend on.
I was a recipient of Dan Price's excellent transfer of information. He has a personality that is easy to like and he gets information across in a way that leaves you enjoying going back to school. I think the coolest thing he said was that after class he was on the phone to engineering delivering information about how the installation experience could be improved through our feedback. Dan said he was going to use the container demo at LISA which makes me really, really nervous :)
As I have blogged before, these events are as useful for building and maintaining relationships as they are for technical value. "So your John Clingan!" My response: "So your Jeff Victor!". "So your Wayne Vincent" "So your Dan Price". I could keep going but I'd be going all day and I apologize for leaving many of you out. Many of these events tend to be regional. This one was national.
I must say thank you to those who like and use the Container Demo. One person said "Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you" for creating the demo. That alone made it worth the work I put in to it.
