Whe you are plugging along with your studies or enjoying a cookout today – I thought I’d post a short video to make you smile today. If you couldn’t make it out to INE’s Rewired party at Cisco Live this past week in San Francisco, or if you just had to leave early and catch the end of the CCIE Party, you missed something special. This is our very own Brian McGahan shredding it up with the band. I think he was sad that he couldn’t stay to see Lenny Kravitz play, and felt the need to participate in his own way. He may have imbibed before this took place, so you’ll forgive him ahead of time if there is a time or two where he’s off tempo.

Anyway, enjoy! And Happy Memorial Day!

About Mark Snow, CCIE #14073:

Mark Snow has been actively working with data and traditional telephony as a Network Consulting Engineer since 1995, and has been working with Cisco Call Manager and voice-over technology since 1998. Mark has been actively teaching and developing content for the CCIE Voice track since 2005, and the Security track since 2007. Mark's story with both data and voice technology started out quite young, as he began learning around the age of five from his father who was a patented inventor and a research scientist at AT&T Bell Laboratories. Mark started out on Unix System V and basic analog telephony, and went on from there to large data networking projects with technologies such as Banyan Vines, IPX and of course IP, and large phone systems such as Nortel 61c, Tadiran Coral, Avaya Definity and of course Cisco Unified Communications Manager in both enterprise and 911 PSAP environments across the US and internationally. Mark is also an accomplished pilot and punched his ticket in 2001. When Mark isn't learning, labing, consulting or teaching, he can be found either piloting or possibly jumping out of a perfectly good airplane, hanging off a rock somewhere or else skiing out west. He also might just be enjoying a quiet day at the beach with his wife and two wonderful young kids, Ryleigh and Judah.

    What is your secret of being free of any carpal tunnel or repetitive strain injuries? Computer enough has been enough to mess my wrists I can only imagine what your wrists go through as you play a guitar on top of spending countless hours in IOS…
