Subject Re: Upcoming Call For Papers Cloud and Open Source Conferences

Maybe we can get Joe or David to submit a talk and you could help them with a real world example
from your experience maybe as a joint talk since you aren't used to the speaking circuit.
Having the case study angle to cement the project overview helps a lot. The real world example
always trumps the theoretical IMHO.  The more people that are presenting on CloudStack the
better for us to take advantage of all these events. 

I have spoken at Cloud Expo East and West a number of times and have worked with the promoters
so if we get a good talk submission I can help guide it through the process. Believe me if
I can give a talk at a conference anyone can :)

Regards, Mark
