About

This is a little place for me to share my discoveries on all things modern for IT infrastructure, and other non-tech stuff I care about like skateboarding, and non-tech architecture.  I have started and failed with several startup ideas and have some battle scars to prove it.  I hope my lessons learned can help others avoid mistakes and keep pushing for innovation that works.  I currently live in the San Francisco bay area, but have a tiny southern accent if you get some beverages in me.  I have deep roots to the state with a Palmetto tree and crescent moon flag.

  1. Hey Jeff, this a great Blog, Congratulations!!, keep moving it..

    Jeff,

    Liked the GAP articles. Anything current and juicy about Chef you can share? Trying to automate the COTS Gorilla (hello Ellison-ware!); not standalone, that’d be too easy. Clustered db on virtualized guest. Argh.

    Wonder if GAP did any of that? Ping me at e-ddress below if pity compels you to. And in any case…

    Thanks for your blog,

    Ross

    Hello Mr. Padgett, Intel Corporation is hosting a Think Tank dinner Sept 17 in San Francisco and I would cordially like to extend an invitation to you. What is the best place to send it?

    Regards,
    Tarina H.
