Virtualization: By definition, it's a moving target

At VMWorld, ZDNet's Sam Diaz asked some people for their quick definition of virtualization, and everyone he spoke with had his or her own definition for the word.

I posted a video clip of some VMWorld coverage that I shot with my handy-dandy FlipCam. But once I handed over my footage to the editing team, I wasn't quite done playing - so I headed back out to Moscone for some more footage.

A colleague made a suggestion of something that could be kind of fun - go around and ask people for their quick definition of "virtualization," the big buzz word at VMWorld. So that's what I did. It came as no big shock that everyone I spoke with had his or her own definition for the word.

These video experiments are still kind of new for me - so, please forgive shaking hands or a stuttering narrator. I'm working on getting better.

Enjoy.
