Welcome to our new Blogger hosted blog. It replaces the old blog that we were hosting ourselves using JRoller. I’ve migrated the few posts we had made so far from the old blog to this new one. To steal a verse from an old Bob Dylan song:
Come gather ’round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You’ll be drenched to the bone.
If your time to you
Is worth savin’
Then you better start swimmin’
Or you’ll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin’.
The times are a-changin’ for SV-GTUG. In addition to the blog hosting change, we just migrated from our old web site to our new meetup site. We have a dedicated GTUGs YouTube Channel for hosting our event videos going forward. Plus, you can now stay connected to SV-GTUG and your fellow group members on LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter. Finally, Google is showing GTUGs around the world some love primarily through the efforts of Googler Stephanie Liu. Stephanie was instrumental in getting Googler Roman Nurik to create this new GTUG .
We have not been very good with respect to blogging about our past events. That is another thing that will be a-changin’. Personally, I still don’t have enough time to do this blog justice. However, I am hoping we can get some help from the community with SV-GTUG members as major contributors to this group blog going forward.
Finally, I think the message of this song is so appropriate for our group. Technology keeps evolving at a faster and faster pace right before our eyes. It really does feel like it is necessary to keep swimming in the stream of new technologies or you will start sinking and get left behind. Come swim with us at future GTUG meetings because technology keeps a-changin’.
