Well, I'm out in New Jersey this week talking with the DoD about network management systems, interoperability, and best practices for building NOCs. I'd planned to take my iPhone out and get some cool pics of me standing in front of a tank or something but it's been dark when we finish every day.

It's interesting to hear everyone's opinion about how network management systems should operate and interoperate. Definitely some very smart people here and I'm looking forward to chatting with them more tomorrow.

In the meantime, I've been thinking a bit about how these practices can apply to those of you in the commercial sector. If you've got a cool NOC drop me a note and I'd like to chat and possibly come see you.
