This is a very interesting article from Network World that talks about how too many interconnects could weaken a network.
It links back to the source post in the "Proceedings of The National Academies of Science." which is an interesting read as well.
At the very least this is something to think over.
Science: too many connections weakens networks
When it comes to connecting networks or other systems together, it is best to have many, but not too many, connections, mathematicians have found.

So, work sent me for a week long Cisco, CCNA boot camp. It really was a great training and I was refreshed on a lot of info I had learned when I took the Cisco classes in college. My plan is to spend this week in review mode and then take the exam on Friday. Because I took the boot camp through Global Knowledge I get 2 free stabs at the exam, if I don’t pass it by then I will have to shell out my own dough to take it again; needless to say, I don’t want that to happen. With any luck I will pass it the first time and won’t have to worry about taking it again, for 3 years at least.
As a result of focusing on this exam I am putting grad school work on hold for another week so I can get this damn exam done and out of the way. Then it will be back to the luxurious life of a Network Engineer / Grad Student.
With any luck once I pass the CCNA I will have more free time to write some more tech blogs for the site, I hope.
