The Cisco blogging community has recently experienced a rash of authors getting their digits. Congratulations to these new CCIEs!
- Ethan Banks, CCIE #20655 (read his account of the lab)
- Victor Cappuccio, CCIE #20657
- Arden Packeer, CCIE #20716 (his story)
These guys provide a great service to the community, detailing their year-long (or more) quests for expert certification and allowing insight to the somewhat mystical testing process. Thank you, gentlemen.
Of course, I hope they don't think that just because they have their numbers they can stop blogging. If anything, the community is sure to demand even more from them now that they don't have to devote every waking hour to study. =)

Oh, I'll keep blogging. But the net I cast will be a bit wider than CCIE prep. I deal with F5 Networks and Riverbed gear as well as Cisco. I'm hoping to do some deep dives into some of the Cisco hardware that we use, and how we implement it. I also plan to take some of what I blog at work, strip out the proprietary information, and post it publicly.
The funny thing about earning the CCIE designation is that it isn't so much about what I've now learned - it's about how much more there is still to know.
