For sure it's impressive, regardless it still takes some dedication to sit down and focus on that new IE track. The reality of multiple IE's is that it's not feasible to maintain that "Expert" level skill set among all tracks. I've work with 2x, 3x, and 4x IE's and there always seems to be a focus area where they are bleeding edge while they let somethings slide, say you have R/S, Security, DataCenter, and Wireless IE's but you focus mainly on DC these days, your DC skills will be polished while your Security/Wireless might become rusty. Thing is, they can quickly dust it off and get up to speed relatively quickly if needed but that seems to be the way it goes. Multiple IE's are an impressive feat and something you would think to be impossible but once you get your first IE, the mindset and process you have is proven and can take you to another and another if you wish.
8x CCIE is obviously a personal goal of this guy and he's done it. Crazy!
There are a few new IE's on here I believe, I dare say everyone of them has already thought "Hmm, should I go for another?"
