The rest of his material is pretty interesting as well, so go have a read at blog.fostketts.net

I appreciate the shout, Chuck!

I wanted to call attention to a couple of points in your post:
1) e-Discovery is exploding all around us. At a recent conference, more than two dozen hands went up when my colleague at Contoural, Greg Forest, asked whether they (IT folks) had been personally involved in discovery for litigation. If you can't deliver the goods on demand today, you'll be in court tomorrow!
2) Email archiving is so easy to get started with, it makes me wonder why everyone isn't already doing it. Just get an appropriate archiving product and turn it on! Save everything until the business folks say it's OK to delete anything.
3) What you don't know about your filesystems can hurt you. Start getting a handle on content before their uncontrolled growth knocks you out!

Looking forward to more of this,
Stephen Foskett

Couldn't agree more! Strange how our blog themes are almost identical ...

  • Frequency of Updates
    I try and write something new 1-2 times per week; less if I'm travelling, more if I'm in the office. Hopefully you'll find the frequency about right!
  • Comments and Feedback
    All courteous comments welcome. TypePad occasionally puts comments into the spam folder, but I'll fish them out. Thanks!
