This morning, Dave and I exchanged top cloud computing stories for July. During the podcast, we nominated mutual friend Lori MacVittie of F5 to be the official arbitrator of “cloud / not cloud” labeling. We were inspired by Gartner’s July Cloud Computing Hype Cycle, in which everything is suddenly cloud. Perhaps we need a #snark warning for parts of this podcast. Give it a listen.
Yesterday, I traded cloud stories with Dave Linthicum and Bill Russell of Blue Mountain Labs. The usual drill, we each pick 3 important stories from the prior month, keep them to ourselves until Dave presses record, and then round robin with our picks and feedback.
This morning, David Linthicum and I traded Top 3 Cloud Computing Stories for 2010. Interestingly, we had the same outlier pick. Great minds?
It was difficult picking top for the year. One, my memory doesn’t go that far back. Two, 2010 was a big year in cloud computing. As always, I filtered from an enterprise context.
Check out our podcast. What would you have picked?
Yesterday, Dave Linthicum, Bill Russell and I exchanged our top 3 cloud computing stories for November. Yes, we discussed WikiLeaks, which in my opinion is definitely a top story, but not necessarily a “cloud story”. But, that was just me.
