OK…this is not a technical post, it’s a word choice post.
I’m going to let you all in on one of my pet peeves … it seems that too many people who write about technology don’t know the difference between the words “number” and “amount”. A couple of examples:
- What is the amount of NICs in that server?
- The amount of TB of storage is surprising.
- The amount of ways the problem can be solved…
- The number of RAMs in servers today is amazing.
I wanted to take a minute and let everyone know that I have accepted a position as a Senior Consultant at VMware (actually started 27 April). I am working in the Professional Services Organization (PSO) and will be focusing on customers in the Federal Civil Sector, primarily in the Washington, DC area.
I want to let you know this so that you know where I’m coming from when I write here – although please do understand that this is my PERSONAL blog and anything that shows up here is my PERSONAL opinion. I do not have the authority (nor the desire) to speak on behalf of my employer, so if I say it, it’s because it conforms to “Virtualization according to Ken” – not “Virtualization according to VMware”!
Thanks for stopping by. I’ll try to make the content here worth your time, so stop by every once in a while to see what I’ve cooked up!
