Weekly Links – January 4, 2013

Another year has come and gone – here’s to a great 2013 for all of the readers of this blog!

Things we want to see in 2013:

  • More SMBs virtualizing their infrastructure, of course!
  • A follow up to this movie
  • The permanent inclusion of the McRib on McDonalds’ menu
  • A more pragmatic, less interventionist approach from incoming Secretary of State John Kerry

Things that we don’t want to see in 2013:

  • Clunky, on-premise IT management software
  • A follow-up to this song
  • Ben Stiller. Time to give things a rest, pal…
  • A global pandemic (best not to let our guard down even after surviving 12/21/12)

Enough ballyhooing, on to your links!
