George Santayana, Harvard philosopher and poet has well said:

“Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it.”

Digital records of this history that we can store, protect, replicate and distribute across the Internet are one way to preserve that history. Blogging about history is another. In a world where increasingly the event horizon for the past does not extend before one's birth, this is invaluable.

  • Chuck Hollis
    SVP, Oracle Converged Infrastructure Systems

    Chuck now works for Oracle, and is now deeply embroiled in IT infrastructure.

    Previously, he was with VMware for 2 years, and EMC for 18 years before that, most of them great.

    He enjoys speaking to customer and industry audiences about a variety of technology topics, and -- of course -- enjoys blogging.

    Chuck lives in Vero Beach, FL with his wife and four dogs when he's not traveling. In his spare time, Chuck is working on his second career as an aging rock musician.

    Warning: do not ever buy him a drink when there is a piano nearby.

  • 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!

    All courteous comments welcome. TypePad occasionally puts comments into the spam folder, but I'll fish them out. Thanks!
