HotLINX24 magazine

The latest edition of London Internet Exchange’s magazine – HotLINX24 – is now available to download from the LINX website: https://www.linx.net/files/hotlinx/hotlinx-24.pdf

The cover story this time is on Internet pioneer Vint Cerf and his keynote address at the 6UK launch event back in November. IPv6 is understandably a big talking point in the industry right now with IPv4 exhaustion just around the corner.

Other stories featured in this edition include the Google Internet Economy Report, the Cisco Visual Networking Index and data centre news from Greg McCulloch at Interxion. There’s also a bumper member news section with Cablenet, ATMAN, Hurricane Electric and associate LINX member, Netnod.

There also the regular features from the Internet Society (ISOC) and the RIPE NCC plus a round up of recent Public Affairs news stories. Added to this is a review of the recent Internet industry events such as the 5th Polish Network Operators’ Group meeting (PLNOG5) in Krakow.

Readers may be interested to know that there is now a specific HotLINX Facebook page which includes exclusive content such as unpublished event photos and articles.

Facebook Fan Pages

Posted by jorbell on October 7, 2010

A couple of weeks ago I created a Facebook fan page for HotLINX magazine, a publication I design and edit for the London Internet Exchange. While part of reason for doing this was vanity I also recognised that there was potentially a lot to be gained by adding this facility to LINX social networking activity.

Now, HotLINX is quite a specialised magazine which is aimed primarily at its ISP members peering Internet traffic at the LINX exchange but it does also try to reflect some of the broader Internet industry issues such as government regulation. As a quarterly publication it is inevitable that not every article feature up to the minute news so I wanted to introduce a way of publishing related material that kept the HotLINX name in the consciousness of its stakeholders.

Facebook has two networking types: The Facebook group and the Facebook fan page. As I’ve already stated I went for the fan page which I felt better suited my needs though that will not necessarily apply to you. Rather than go into the differences in-depth I’d like to refer you to the Search Engine Journal site which actually carried out some detailed research into the two services. You can read about the findings on their Facebook Group vs Facebook Fan Page: What’s Better? page.
