Lori wasn’t able to represent F5 Networks at the first Infrastructure 2.0 Working Group but has been perhaps the most prolific contributor with some incredible thoughts on how networks must evolve. Erik Giesa from F5 was on the Future in Review panel on I2.0 that inspired the formation of the Working Group. So F5, Lori and Erik have been infrastructure 2.0 thought leaders.
Lori is one of the Young Turks of Infrastructure 2.0 because of her series of great posts too lengthy to list in its entirety. We’ve highlighted a few:
