Lew Moorman and Robert Scoble of Rackspace

April 6, 2009

Last week Rackspace announced the appointment of Lew Moorman as president of Rackspace’s Cloud Computing Efforts.  As luck would have it, Lew was attending Web 2.0 and I was able to grab a few minutes of his time to shoot a video.  Not only that but as added bonus, recent Rackspace conscript Robert Scoble joined the conversation as well.

To watch in High Quality: after clicking play, click the “HQ” button that will appear on the bottom.

Some of the topics Lew and Robert tackle:

  • What does it mean to be president of Rackspace’s computing efforts?
  • What’s “building 43” about and what is Robert’s mission at Rackspace?
  • How did Rackspace decide on hiring Robert and Rocky?
  • Rackspace added to the NASDAQ index (even though they trade on the NYSE)
  • Robert asks Lew about Slicehost and Rackspace’s plans there.
  • Lew out at Web 2.0 meeting with a lot of developers and looking to help them sell their tools to Rackspace customers.

Pau for now…
