Effectiveness – Network Truths, Principles and Fallacies

I gave a 13-minute talk to the Irish Network Operators Group (INOG) recently. In this 13-minute video I argue that you can become more effective, and happier, by standing back and reflecting on how you work, leveraging existing truths, fallacies and principles.

I introduce The twelve networking truths and the 8 Fallacies of Distributed Computing. I then describe a handful of my own learnings and fancy terms like Chestertons Fence and the Gordian Knot.

Check out the video folks, I’d love your feedback.

I did the presentation because I was a little bit afraid, and know myself enough by now to recognise small fears as opportunities. This is the same fear I faced when I started this blog.

This isn’t false modesty, I’ve done talks before in Amazon and it’s not a terrifying experience, but I was still very nervous. It still took me hours of consideration, planning and prep, in addition to a fair bit of anxiety.

I got a real buzz from doing the talk and overcoming the fear. Now that I’ve seen the video, I’ve got a few things to work on. But by facing a small fear, I’m now slighter better at public speaking and a bit more likely to do it in the future.

If you live near Dublin I strongly recommend a trip to an iNOG meetup.

  1. Many debate that the creation of technology to the making decisions process would completely reject
    any human error. They’re Easy To Use While spy gadgets might appear hi-tech and challenging to use, they
    have got become considerably more easy to use within the years.
    While some of the are ideal for saving a certain amount of time, and having
    information ready on my desktop in lieu of having to use an internet window to
    navigate in order to find that information, it does not necessarily
    should be useful though, there are tons like the HAL 9000
    gadget, that’s only a button you push, and plays quotes from your 2001 film.

  2. So recommendations insufficient to convince you
    that you would be doing yourself a disservice by
    wanting to source your individual finance – well – you might
    be special. Pressure washing may also go far in cleaning out the grime that builds up over numerous years of seasonal weather.
    If you feel that you would rather make use of the
    money you might have saved for Christmas on having the family
    together and enjoying your time and effort together, there are new ways to pay for the expensive presents
    that you buy.
