Before the session even started I knew Mission Critical would have to do something dramatic. More than 100 questions were submitted during the registration process, and another 30 were submitted during the event itself. I think our panel handled between 10 and 15 questions, including debate and follow-ups. In other words, we have way more questions to answer.
How will we do this?
- Continue reading this blog. I posted two questions earlier this week that we did not address live. The panelists have all said they would check in and answer questions posted on the blog.
- Check with LinkedIn. The Mission Critical Open Forum Discussion Group will be a venue that I use to reach new audiences interested in social networking.
- 3. Editorial coverage. Some of the questions call out for more detailed discussions. I will bring these to the attention of our columnists.
- New column. We may bring the blog discussions to print, should the enthusiasm for the Forum continue.
- More webinars. I have already begun the process of taking the feedback we received from yesterday’s event in the hope of improving the format and having another webinar.
I would be remiss if I didn’t thank the group’s panelists:
Dennis Cronin, Principal, Gilbane-Mission Critical • Kevin Dickens, Deputy Director of Mechanical Engineering, Jacobs' Architecture and Engineering Practice • Scott Good, CBRE Canada • Christopher Johnston, Senior Vice President, National Critical Facilities Chief Engineer, Syska Hennessy Group • Ted Martin, Vice President, Technical Operations, Digital Realty Trust • John Musilli, Data Center Operations Manager, Intel • Dean Nelson, GDS Director, Sun • Mark Thiele, Director of Business Operations R&D, VMware.
Check back here often for more discussions.
Oh, and I should mentioned that it is not too late to view the webinar. It will be archived on our website for a year along with many of our previous webinars.
