Welcome to this week’s installment of the Xtreme Minute. This is our weekly rundown of the TechGenix Xtreme Podcast with Louise Chalupiak and Peter King. Click the links below to go directly to the articles up for discussion and to access additional TechGenix content. Today is about truth in life and tech. Things will get messy, things will change, and people will occasionally do bad things.
We have a double-header from Mitch Tulloch that begins with Good housekeeping for messy rooms and datacenters and moves on to Avoiding future shock: Care and feeding of racks and cabinets. Most of us are guilty of leaving the task of labeling cables until later. All too often, later never comes. This double-header is full of helpful hints and advice that could save much frustration and many hours of expensive labor.
Second up we discuss an article submitted by Brien Posey, Ripe for change: Are social networks the next industry to face disruption? Nothing lasts forever, and it would appear that this old adage holds true even in the world of social networking. Myspace and Blockbuster are references from our past and if the evidence holds true, Facebook could be next.
The final article we discuss today is from Melissa Burns. Titled, IT employee monitoring: 5 reasons you should to it – and 5 you shouldn’t. Cast your votes now, folks! It would seem that everyone is either very far left or very far right when it comes to this subject. The courts have spoken, and employers have the right to monitor their ecosystem, but it is not carte blanche and caution must be taken.
