Hi everyone, This is a quick follow up to my previous video where I discuss my theory that WVD will commoditize remoting apps and desktops. Continue reading Two of the Reasons I Believe WVD will Commoditize Remoting
Hey everyone! Take a look at my thoughts on how Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) will fundamentally change remoting apps and desktops. I would absolutely love to hear what you think about this. Am I crazy (well, duh)? Am I right on the button? Somewhere in-between? You can always email me, tweet, linkedin, etc etc etc. Enjoy!!!! Continue reading Will WVD change the landscape of remoting apps and desktops?
Absolutely not BUT you would be correct to say I haven’t had a ton of time to update this site or my YouTube channel. I’ve had a few things going on but most importantly is my work with DJ Eshelman and the Thrive-IT livecast we do once a week. We are working on expanding from just the livecast to other facets as well including website, webinars, training, etc all based around helping technical people with soft skills and other non-technical pieces of peoples careers. All of this will hopefully be coming very soon but in the meantime enjoy the YouTube … Continue reading Have I Disappeared?
Two years ago today, my son Owen was given the all clear and declared to be in remission from Pediatric Follicular Lymphoma. The Devos Children’s Hospital in Grand Rapids is second to none and my family will always be eternally grateful. Dr. Deanna Mitchell is a one of kind doctor and I cannot say thank you enough for everything you did for us. I also want to thank Workspot and especially Michael Keen for giving me the time needed to be with my family and especially Owen during his treatments. I will always be sad that things didn’t work out … Continue reading Remission Anniversary for Owen!
Been a while since I’ve blogged but I wanted to fill everyone in on some changes. First, I started my own YouTube channel here. Please go and check out the video’s.

Second, this ties directly … Continue reading Ch-ch-ch-changes!!!!! Updates on my YouTube Channel and Partnering with DJ Eshelman!
Good Monday everyone! Today I am launching my YouTube channel and my first video: IT Marketing to End Users. In the video, I talk about the importance of using marketing techniques and give 5 tips on how others have used those techniques to turn end user touching projects, such as a virtual desktop roll out, into not only successful project but to get user buy-in into those projects. I will post a blog about the topic as well later in the week. The channel is a bit sparse right now but as I mentioned in my last blog I’m hoping … Continue reading IT Marketing to End Users and Intro of my YouTube Channel
Hi everyone! After taking a much needed break from social media, I am revved up and ready to go. It is amazing how taking a break, no matter how small, can change your attitude. The constant influx of information, both good and, especially now, bad can be extremely overwhelming and you don’t even notice how it’s dragging you down until you take that break. BUT here I am and I want to lay out some plans of mine for the foreseeable future in regards to content. First and foremost, I am going to be starting a YouTube channel. I plan … Continue reading My Upcoming Projects and Call for Reviewers
During my short stint at IGEL, an interesting request came up during the first couple of days. Customers wanted Chrome built into IGEL OS as that was their corporate standard. IGEL OS has Firefox already but even that difference can confuse users. This seems like a simple request but Google has licensing issues that would need to be taken care of and all that legal stuff for IGEL to put Chrome directly into the OS. My question to the SE group was, do they truly need Chrome or would Chromium work just as well? Obviously the answer was “unsure” and … Continue reading Question of the day: Is it Chrome they want or simply Chromium?
Hello all! If you’ve followed me or read my blogs or heard me speak, you know I’m a huge community advocate. The EUC community has grown immensely as the technology has grown and matured and expanded far beyond how it started with Server Based Computing. It entails more than simply knowing terminal services, remote desktop services and other vendor products from the likes of Citrix and VMware. One of the great things I love about this area of technology is you need to know so much more than simply the core technology. For instance, networking, hypervisors, provisioning systems, Active Directory, … Continue reading Why Should a Vendor Actively Engage with Community? This is Why!
