Cross-post - GigaOm: How to Safeguard Your Privacy Online

I'm been fascinated by the constant drum of media around privacy issues on the Internet and how people are surprised when their privacy has been compromised. I absolutely believe that everything you send on-line is being tracked and monitored (and I'm not too paranoid :) and wrote about some things you can do to help you try to keep some of your privacy and leave less of a digital footprint for Om.

Cross-post: GigaOm - In Search of the Über Set-top Box

I've been thinking a lot about video on the Internet these days given our recent investment in GridNetworks. That got me thinking about set-top boxes and I wrote this post for Om. Comments and suggestions always welcome!

Breaking out of the Cisco mold

I came across a great article by Network World today on why it makes sense to break away from Cisco as your single networking vendor for your organization. To be fair, this article was a counterpoint to an argument on why having a single vendor and a single throat to choke is a good thing. The point of the article that I found very interesting was that while Cisco is a single company, their product line is complex and filled with many reliability impacting software features that most people never touch. This impacts MTTR and means that the claim that a single vendor provides better reliability is not relevant and fairly hollow. You can read the full article here.

As some of the comments on the article point out, quality support from your networking vendor is of paramount importance. We here at Vyatta agree and think our customers say it best.
