I enjoy Tech Field Day events for the independence and sheer nerdiness that they bring out. Networking Field Day events are held twice a year. I had the privilege of presenting the demo for Infineta Systems at NFD3 and made it through unscathed. There is absolutely no room for ‘marketecture’. When you have sharp people like Ivan Pepeljnak of ipSpace fame and Greg Ferro of Packet Pushers fame questioning you across the protocol stack, you have to be on your toes.
