The question comes up, from time to time... Why do System Administrators seem to be better at (Social) Networking than Network Administrators. You'd think that Netadmins would have the communications thing down cold. But, I've found, we tend to have smaller social networks, but with links we can rely upon to do our jobs.
Linked in? Yep, I've been there a while...
But, why are there so many more Systems-related conferences than Network-related? OS related trade shows, versus Network trade shows.
I just find it odd, that's all.
