VMworld2008 – Some personal thoughts…

I just want to add a little more about my impressions of the VMworld2008 conference in Las Vegas.  I have to say, it has been a long time since I have felt real intellectual intimidation and pressure to keep up, but I felt both in refreshingly uncomfortable quantities at this conference.  So much brain-power was actually a little unsettling, and I wondered if I would even fit in.

Luckily, I subscribe to the belief that it is better to be suspected to be a fool than to open one’s mouth and remove all doubt.  I hope my disguise worked…      ^______^

I had some serious job-envy going on, too, I hafta tell ya.  While I do have a comfortable and secure career, the notion of working at a place that not just allows you to fire on all 12 cylinders, but actually demands and encourages you to spark it up to 16 – well, that definitely tickles something way down deep in the lizard part of my brain.  Salary didn’t even come into consideration…

For the time being, I’ll just have to settle for the eight or so I get to use now – I have had it worse (think two, that’s right, 2!), and I know how to be thankful.  My plan is to know a lot more about virtualization in time for next year, so maybe keeping up will just be a slightly smaller effort on my part.

It could happen…
