Virtual Fun and Games

As we continue gearing up for the Cisco Live Las Vegas 2010 event we realize that all work and no play, well it can make life a little dull and one a little crazy 😉

I wrote a while back about games for virtual events. Since then we have had hundreds of people login to Cisco Live and Networkers Virtual to test their Cisco trivia chops in the Colossal Cranium Challenge.

Today we are pleased to announce the release of the Cisco Jargon Jumble. This game tests your ability to find key acronyms and technology terms amongst a scramble of letters on the screen. Each level of the game gets a little harder and the faster you complete the level the more points you earn. There is a Flip SlideHD to be won, login now and compete for prizes.

Of course it can’t all be fun and games as there is knowledge to be gained in Cisco Live and Networkers Virtual. I referenced the extensive technical training opportunities that will be available during the June 29 – July 1 virtual event taking place in conjunction with Cisco Live Las Vegas 2010 in a previous blog. These sessions aren’t the only opportunity to think more, do more, and be more, during the virtual event.

Snorkeling dogs, flying cows, wireless made easy

If you haven’t seen all of the Valet TV spots — you know, the ones showing people briefly interrupted after starting the install of their new Valet wireless, and then looking back to discover they’re already connected —  Cisco has a web page set up that cycles through a nice set of these cute ads. Each one shows a different and humorous take on the “wireless made easy” theme.

Vanquishing chaos, confusion, complexity via an online tool

When we launched the My Cisco Workspace a few months ago, we knew it was a great addition to the capabilities on  But even so, we’ve been heartened by the many accolades bestowed on it by customers and partners.

For Cisco customers, My Cisco and the My Cisco Workspace offer a range of services at one  click on your mouse, including recent service requests, alerts for updates on software previously downloaded, active support notifications, network bookmarks available from any system you use. And there are even a few things more for Cisco partners, who have access to deals and quotes, a partner event calendar, partner news, program enrollments and more. 

All of these capabilities for partners have led Bill Marcus, Director of Client Services at Amazon Consulting, to record this video declaring that My Cisco Workspace fights the “3 C’s” of doing business — Chaos, Confusion and Complexity:
