Helping Everyone Become An IT Innovator

from the lend-me-your-ears dept

As many of our readers already know, we've been producing several topical conversations on a variety of subjects via the Insight Community, and we'd like to introduce our newly sponsored site, IT Innovation, brought to you by Sun Microsystems and Intel. (You may have missed the subtle new 'IT Innovation' link added to the top of our page.) First and foremost, the goal of this effort for us here at Techdirt is to create interesting and useful content for our readers in the realm of server hardware and datacenter management.

We'll be covering trends in datacenters and skills for IT managers -- and asking the Insight Community for its input on generating relevant insights for future conversations. And as with any natural conversation, we're not 100% sure where the topics will lead because the ideas will develop and evolve as we discuss them. But we'll start with current trends, as well as far off predictions, advice and tips for IT managers, business tools, and try to delve deeper into the subjects that resonate with the community participants. If you're already a member of the Insight Community, you can contribute your thoughts on the datacenter upgrade process. If you're not already a member, you can join now.

    Not at all. Disguised as a blog means that instead of a full page ad talking about their stuff, the articles guide you into a discussion about their stuff.

    The content of the blog is not controlled by Sun or Intel -- as should be obvious to anyone who took the time to actually read the content. They are sponsoring the launch of the site, and as part of the sponsorship there is plenty of content in the side sponsorship bar related to their products, which is basically what a sponsorship entails.

    Assuming that they then have control over the content, when that is clearly not the case is silly.
