Re: Vendor bias?
A good policy of course. I've noticed it's working well too. While the sponsorship is duly noticed there's no blatant selling going on other than hoping that participants in the various venues trust the speakers and their particular firms. Good job all and looking forward to the newest launch!

Yes. He did get his own statue though which was a nice touch.

Paul was in line to host Octopi in Blazers. And then he croaked. Such is life.

Re: Vendor bias?
You're right. Perhaps Blotchy was able to predict the fate of Inky -- akin to their German cousin Paul -- and made the decision to stay behind.

Re: Vendor bias?
It's easy to confuse desperation with intelligence if the end result is successful. Inky's fate is unknown -- remember, this smart guy was rescued from the clutches of something called a crawfish pot. Blotchy will spend the rest of his/her/its days well-fed and protected.

Re: Vendor bias?
I am a HUGE fan of Inky the Octopus and even of his less intelligent and now left behind Blotchy.

Re: Vendor bias?
It's important to note that Light Reading has a no-shills policy that applies to all of its programs -- events, webinars, white papers, and now Upskill U. Yes, the occasional spiel manages to slip through Inky-the-Octopus style on occasion. But almost all of our sponsors understand that blatant marketeering in these venues does not serve their interest.

Re: The whitebox - Cisco replacement??
Thanks for the suggestion @Phil! We'll be loading more classes soon. White boxes could fit into a number of areas including architecting next-gen networks, security, open source and more so we'll make sure to build that into the lectures we have going forward.

The whitebox - Cisco replacement??
Chambers talked about in 2015, and AT&T talked about it earlier this year.   Seems important enough to add to the agenda.


When will Cisco sponsor training on the whitebox?  Does the market really need more Cisco CPE?
