www.LoveMyTool.com (LMT) was started in 2007 by Denny Miu and Tim O’Neill. We both had recently come from startups and knew all about the corporate struggle to get noticed in a huge industry dominated by some very big companies.
First - LMT is a community of top industry technical people and top analysts that write every month to try and help the industry, network managers, amateur network people, students, seasoned analysts and forensics investigators.

The LMTV – WTF has become a Hot Ticket item and is for sponsors to talk about their company and the technology solutions they offer including Demos and important information. We also have Sharkfest.TV where industry experts will be presenting topics related to the usage and values of Wireshark, the top open source network packet analyzer.
One can see that our sponsors come from all over and are of all sizes – from small to big, new and seasoned. Netscout is a big company and is 30 years old and we also have companies like Garland Technology, NetFort and LiveAction which are new companies.
One of our newest sponsors is the UBM team that put on Interop and Black Hat events worldwide. Some new and Very Interesting Sponsors are – LiveAction, NetFort, Apposite and Centerity. All of our sponsors are great and many have been with us from the very beginning – NetScout, Datacom, Ixia(Anue Systems), Wildpackets and Network Instruments (JDSU).
We have won 2 awards for excellence and for our contribution to Network Monitoring and Analysis Technology!
As for topics we cover - we focus on the values that different technologies bring to or harm networks, social technology topics, computer/network forensics and everything in between.
We also do selective product reviews with the focus on how the product can help network teams be successful with screen shots and real value definitions and examples.
