Hello all,

My first week at NetApp Solidfire was pretty fast and exciting. Some great people and interesting tech.  I cannot wait to start writing and sharing with you how cool that stuff is. But in the meantime I have some interesting articles to share. But it is a small issue – that is a sign of how busy I have been.

This article this week comes from a french restaurant in the Denver airport.  Nice view and good food.  And 3 more hours for my next flight (update: 3.5 hours now).

BTW, I know technical marketing people, like at Veeam, that share everything, which I think is overshare.  I want to share what is useful.  If you have an opinion on that please let me know, as I can share more or less as people think.

Have a great week!

Michael

An interesting article about security and what a great title!

I thought this article about artists trying to protect or remember the worlds lost monuments was interesting.  I think that this is pretty cool, and a good idea.

How to get the most from your Apple Card Benefits
This article is quite well done in explaining some of the benefits of the Apple card but also how to get more out of it. Not sure when this card will get to Canada, but I plan on getting one as soon as I can.

Thanks for reading or skimming this far,

Michael
