So I'm still on vacation until Monday next week but I had some spare time so I thought I'd record a new podcast with just me talking, no guests, no slidedecks but I am going to talk about a report from IDC and the Linux Foundation which you can read here (registration required but its childsplay). I applaud the work thats been done on the report but I question a lot of the quality of it's findings and demographic research. Not remotely questioning the passion and drive to get the paper out, just a lot of the surrounding stuff thats so easily fixable next time. Not out to bash analysts - not remotely. Hear why on the podcast.
To read Amanda McPherson's take on it and to balance my feelings read her article here.
Also some cool announcements of why this is the LAST podcast that will be released for download statically from CloudEvangelist. To hear why and what changes are coming you have to listen.
Events: I am speaking at a Dell Cloud event in London next week, and the following week at a Red Hat / IBM event in Zurich, Switzerland. I also will be out in Finland during late November early December, more updates when I have my diary locked down next week. I will be recording podcasts on the road so make sure you listen to todays to find out how to get the recordings from now on !
Remember these podcasts are the work of the author and all views and opinions are my own and not Red Hat's !
