Hi folks,

Jacob Farmer will offer selections from his Next Generation Storage seminar this
Thursday 10-11:30am, with Q&A + Lunch (provided) from 11:30 - 1:00, somewhere on 
the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center campus (South East Lake Union), 
specific location TBD.

I'm taking advantage of opportunity here.  Jacob dropped me a note Friday night
to say that he would be in town later this week, we negotiated schedule & 
content Saturday, and I'll reserve a conference room Monday.  This is free 
training; lunch is on Jacob (likely boxed from Gretchen).

Jacob is a frequent speaker at Usenix, SNIA, and Interop.  For those of you who 
have not yet had the pleasure of spending time with Jacob, I suggest that you 
are in for a treat.  Listening to Jacob is somewhat like trying to drink from a 
firehose.  Bright, hyperactive, enthusiastic.  While he is conversant with the 
theory behind storage and related topics, he also gets dirty with product and 
can discuss the pros and cons of particular platforms.

I will be sending a more specific announcement, including location and request
for RSVP, Monday evening.


BTW:  Jacob will be leaving at 1pm for another appointment but can return at
4:30pm and is then free until 8pm, when he heads to Seatac for a flight home. 
If you are interested in hosting him in the late afternoon, or would like to 
join him for dinner and/or drinks, drop me a note.
