Hi, my name is Stuart Miniman and you’re on my personal blog site. Since a young age, I’ve been into computers (starting with my mother’s TRS-80 Model 3 and soon followed by my own Apple IIc). In the 90s, this meant that my wife and I had a website (no longer available) and in that fine tradition, in 2007, I dove into the social media space. A Twitter account soon led me to starting a small blog (where you can continue to find less structured posts on traveling and other topics). My tag cloud (on the right) should give you a general idea of the topics that I cover. When looking at the adoption of technologies, I try to look at both sides of “the chasm” – what the early adopters are excited about and how the technology impacts the majority.
For 10 years, I was an analyst at Wikibon and host of theCUBE. I watched the progression of infrastructure (my background is in networking and virtualization) as the pull of cloud computing grew. I dug into the emerging cloud native landscape, including the rise of containers, Kubernetes, and serverless. In 2020, I left the media/analyst role to take a job at Red Hat in the Cloud Platform team. For more on my professional background, please see LinkedIn: http://www.linkedin.com/in/miniman
Thank you for checking out the site; courteous comments and debate are always welcome.
