‘I could tell you my adventures—beginning from this morning,’ said Alice a little timidly: ‘but it’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.’
–Lewis Carroll, “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
I was invited to guest-blog on MapR’s site recently, in preparation for a webcast I’m doing next week with their VP of Partner Strategy, Bill Peterson. MapR is known for a highly technical blog, but I’ve learned and shown that even technical things can be a bit entertaining now and then.
So, after a turn of phrase that brought Lewis Carroll to mind, you can go see a couple of Alice references and, in a strange sort of way, how they fit my evolution into storage administration–not entirely unlike my evolution into business intelligence and big data and most of the other stuff I’ve ever made my living at.
Visit the posting, “It’s no use going back to yesterday’s storage platform for tomorrow’s applications,” on MapR’s blog site, and if you’d like come through the looking-glass with Bill and I on Wednesday, January 25, 2017, register with the links on that page.
As an aside, I promise that Bill is not the one mentioned in “The Rabbit Sends a Little Bill.”

However, in this case, the linked blog post as well as the referenced webinar are part of my day job. The humor is my own, for which I am solely responsible, and not at all sorry.
