Kick in the Pants

I’ve been reading and re-reading this rant from Seth Godin about people being uninformed. It brought to my attention how much I haven’t been learning when it comes to the industry I’m working in.

Now, it’s easy to do self-criticism, but it’s hard to do constructive self-criticism. It’s easy to say, “I suck because I’m not learning enough,” and leave it at that. I think a good idea is to add “and I can fix that” at the end of such self-criticisms. (Note to self: Solution-oriented mindset.)

So what can I do to fix that? I think it’d be a good idea to find 3 blogs on the storage industry that I can read daily. Next step: Re-do my blog bookmarks with different categories for storage, programming, design, personal, and news.

UPDATE: Found this link to a top 10 list. It’s really old, but it’s a start.

I bookmarked these three blogs: Hu’s Blog (HDS), Dave’s Blog (NetApp), and Drunken Data. I don’t know if they’ll be great or not, but I’ll start reading them and see what happens from there.

Now to play around with Delicious so I can read these regularly.

UPDATE (10/25/2010) – These blogs are fucking boring.
