Which cloud will win?
Today's The New Stack podcast episode was fun: wild speculation about how the future of cloud vendors like Amazon, AWS, and Google could play out depending on how fast the packaged software market converts to SaaS, if at all. Also, see me talk about WaaS and DaaS, something I should know more about.
It's got Nancy Gohring, Alex Williams, and myself of course.

Shameless Self-promotion: DevOps edition
I frequently consult with 451 clients about DevOps - what is it, how real is it, how to market the potential of it, etc. If you know me, you know I'm pleasantly jaundiced about this kind of thing.

If you're interested in talking about this stuff, email me up (email@example.com) and let's arrange an hour or a whole day to go over it.
To give you a sense of it, here's the short presentation:
