Three things that just occurred to me in the span of a minute:

Glen Weaver Profile: The Weave

1. RSS is great. I hear a lot of people tell me they “can’t get into it.” Whatever. Their loss. My news and information intake grows each day and I love it.

2. These people can’t be serious.

3. Hewlett-Packard recently decided to premier its new data deduplication products, predicting that the technology will shift the balance of storage methods away from tape and toward disk. But just last night the company sends out a release claiming that:

“IDC forecasts the tape market to generate more than $1.4 billion in 2009. This industry continues to experience healthy performance as tape provides SMBs with a cost-effective storage solution to handle the explosive increase in digital data. As the tape market offers small and midsize customers affordable and reliable data protection solutions, HP and Sony have decided to jointly develop a new tape format (again).”

As one of my TechTarget colleagues put it so succinctly: “Lots of people storing stuff these days.”
