Welcome to TheGreenerField, my thought-space for all things networking. I’ve been a user, analyst, blogger, journalist, and most recently a marketer of networking technologies for 15+ years. I started in our industry when coding meant Pascal and FORTRAN; LANs were networking, and a small company called Cisco just introduced a router thing. I’ve been an editor for several publications, including Network Computing and PC Magazine. My work has also appeared in Network World, Red Herring, and dozens of other publications.
I used to say that I had published in every area of networking. Our industry has grown so much that I’m not sure I can still make that claim. I can say that I’ve researched and analyzed many technologies including containers, micro-services, virtualization, VoIP and communications (H.323, SIP and more), network security (IDS/IPS, cloud security), and everything related to the WAN (e.g. carrier services, NFV, SDN, SD-WAN, and WAN optimization).
As for “the Dave” behind TheGreenerfield – I sit just outside of “Silicon Alley” Israel, the dot on the globe with more startups per capita than any other country in the world. I’m a father of three and husband to one. When I’m not delving into technology, I’m exploring this fascinating part of the globe. I’m a devotee of David Allen’s GTD, a religion of a sort, which is just fine for the Middle East. I have been known to be mildly heretical at times and dip into Covey every once in a while.
David is an outstanding content creator. He was not just a prolific content generator during his time at Silver Peak: David would constantly be interacting with the field personnel to solicit feedback and hone his messages to hit the most critical points that needed to be conveyed.Scott Stanney,
