> So, what are you having your up-and-coming NOC staff read?

In an attempt to wean them off of unmanageable PERL scripts
<http://www.complete.org/FoundationsOfPythonNetworkProgramming>

There are tons of tutorials and articles on the web, often with links
to other useful stuff
<http://www.howstuffworks.com/internet-infrastructure.htm/printable>
<http://www.inetdaemon.com/tutorials/internet/ip/routing/bgp/troubleshooting/>

And let's not forget all of the NANOG presentations. Sometimes the slides are
quite good on their own but if not, the audio is there too.
<http://www.nanog.org/meetings/nanog29/presentations/smith.pdf>

I would encourage them to download PDFs, videos and websites for future
reference and to share with colleagues.

Also, set up a wiki, and ask them all to record any useful bits of info there
and to track Recent Changes every week or so to see what colleagues are
sharing.
