If you’re a system (or network, or storage, or database, or security…) administrator you need to be a continuous learner. And you need to read widely, so that you get perspectives from people in different situations. Your peers are out there doing interesting things, and you should take advantage of their experiences.
Head on over to the blogs by the members of LOPSA, the system administrator’s professional society:
The RSS feed leads to 999 blogs about all aspects of system and network administration. It’s the best collection of “what’s actually happening now” in sysadmin that I’ve seen. If you’re serious about your craft, you should seriously consider spending time each week reading some of these.
