This is one of the last three podcasts we recorded at FOSDEM that I am releasing and it's with Ross Lawley who is a driver bod / Python genius / architect / evangelist at 10gen, top notch technologist, passionate about 10gen and the cause and gets Cloud inside and out.
We recorded this, as with other podcasts in Belgium deep in the bowels of the worst recording environment at ULB University so the quality although entirely acceptable isn't up to our usual broadcast quality. Still entirely listenable.
Come back next week I have recordings with John Mark Walker, venerable community director for Gluster at Red Hat as well as one of my oldest friends in Open Source.
Monday next week I am also recording an interview with Jon Maddog Hall, Free Software royalty so don't miss that, it could be our biggest ever download figure I'm sure.
So I'm currently on the road for Red Hat again. Six weeks of travelling, planes, trains, automobiles and maybe even a camel this time. Am in London in a rented ex LOCOG apartment on UK leg of the Red Hat Partner event. Next week I'm in Portugal on event duty, I'm in Egypt, Spain and Amsterdam in short order after.
Tonight I thought I'd reflect on some of the stuff I've seen and heard and also muse / ponder on the position of suppliers and partners in the evolution and growth of Cloud. As I travel around I will be recording using my mobile rig and doing a lot of podcasts and interviews as well as posting pics.
If you want to listen to this it's sub 10 minutes and tries to paint an aural picture of the state of the nation from a partner perspective as well as level some of the playing field. If you are a Red Hat partner who couldn't get to tour maybe this will help you with some adlib non scripted perspective of my take on tour and Cloud tech.
