The first day at the Manageability Developers Conference (www.mandevcon.com) in Santa Clara was University Day. Unlike some other conferences where University Day is a chance for college students to enter at a discounted price near the end of the conference, MDC University Day is the opening day of the conference and is all about giving attendees a head start to the rest of the conference.

Intel has released a new game: IT Manager 3: Unseen Forces.
It is a promotional game, sure, but a very cool one. From the user guide:
One of the key things I have been thinking about is the endless debate on the # of agents you have to install on a client for Inventory, Management, Security & Compliance, etc.. One of our customers (we call them End Users) is working on a agentless installation for vPro, where the mgmt console that is managing is not utilizing the agent function to provide vPro manageability.
