New Contest: You Decide
We want to kick off the new year with an exciting contest, and we want your input. We have done a variety of contests in the past — from the top 3 Knowledge Point earners winning prizes like an XBOX 360, to giveaways of Amazon.com gift cards for the top 10 point earners over 500 Knowledge Points. Send us your feedback here; let’s start off 2009 on a great and exciting note!
Featured IT Blogger
Our featured IT blogger of the week is Jason Boche of Boche.net. Following in the theme of several bloggers we have been covering, Jason’s expertise lies in all things virtualization. He not only covers general virtualization topics, but he also stays on top of the latest news stories in the realm of virtualization and VMware. Recently, he was one of the first bloggers to announce the new name for the next generation of VMware Virtual Infrastructure, VMware vSphere. His content is engaging and his opinion is well-respected by many virtualization pros. IT Knowledge Exchange is pleased to feature him here.
