Ok well maybe its not live but here’s a short (3:34) video I shot yesterday with David Berlind, the man behind Cloud Connect. The conference kicked off Tuesday night and continues, as I type, until this evening.
To watch in High Quality: after clicking play, click the “HQ” button that will appear on the bottom.
This video was shot right in the middle of the “speed geeking” section yesterday where attendees visited nine different cloud demos being presented by the sponsors: Amazon Web Services, IBM, Mosso, Google, Right Scale and Salesforce.com.
In the Video David talks about
- The idea behind Cloud Connect and whats going on
- Where the cloud works best
- His predictions for whats going to happen in the cloud space in ’09 (hint, watch out for the big boys).
But wait, there’s more…
If you’re interested in hearing more from Cloud connect Check back here over the next week since I’ll be posting about six more videos as well as an audio podcast with the founder of Google Apps.
Pau for now…

From the Computer Museum's brochure collection.
Next week I’m making my way back to the Bay Area to attend the Cloud Connect un-conference that is being held Jan 20-22 at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View.
The conference is being held in the unstructured un-conference style which I prefer. It allows more time for meeting people and talking about what you want to talk about. That being said, the event won’t be total anarchy and in fact I’m looking forward to the talk David Berlind is moderating Tuesday night. There is also a cool panel that Red Monk analyst and fellow Eph, Stephen O’Grady is leading the following day on the Cloud and Lock-in.
I will be attending the conference armed with an audio recorder as well as a brand new Flip Mino to try my hand at Video podcasting. Attendees, you are forewarned 🙂
Checking out Blueprint in Action
While I’m out in the Valley I’m going to visit a couple of big accounts to see first-hand how they are using the Lombardi Blueprint and also get their input on what they’d like to see in the way of new functionality going forward.
The other area that I want to research is the applicability of Blueprint in the supplier chain/operations world. I think it would be a great fit but i want to check with some contacts out there to get their thoughts.
