Sharing some thoughts

I’ve been very busy with the extra activities for the Logica Virtualization Practice group. These means I’ve been spending extra time on creating new presentations for our Virtualization Masterclasses. I’ve joined internal discussions on Sales support, Social Media and the activity calendar for this year. And I’ve been documenting my knowledge in different architectural templates, factsheets and other communications.

All these extra activities have kept me from sharing my thoughts, experiences and ideas through my own social communication channels, like Twitter and this blog.

So when I was catching up on the latest buzz in Social Media land, I came across this Citrix Blog about Profile Manager.

And I just had to share my 2 cents on the subject. I’ll be eagerly tracking the discussion, hoping more people will share their thoughts and a great discussion on the functional requirements for a Profile Manager can be started.

Hopefully this also fires up my enthousiasm to pick up on my social media activities and produce some great new blogs and tweets!
