I have decided to begin blogging. I have been thinking about it off and on for years, and thinking about it seriously for months. I had wavered, wondered if I had the motivation, time, or enough things of interest to say to keep an audience interested. And lets just make the giant assumption that some people actually do find backup, recovery, and archiving interesting, shall we?
However, in the past few days, all of those questions seemed to have resolved themselves more or less simultaneously. What was opaque, is now clear. Aided in part by a good swift quick kick of motivation courtesy of some of the less than accurate coverage of backup and recovery and EMC found elsewhere on the web as of late. Nothing to stir the blood and get the competitive juices flowing like some good ol' misinformation, courtesy of the competition.
