I am fine with being the point person.

(+cc Gregg)

Chip & Prasanna,
Thanks very much for the votes. It's quite helpful! Anyone else?

I agree with the ++ votes on "top 10 interesting clouds." That's the one
that I myself would most like to see, too. I will start another thread to
try to find users willing to participate in a video like that. If anyone
here has suggestions, existing relationships, or clouds of their own that
they'd like to show off, please do let me know ASAP!

"Conceptual overview of cloudstack deployment" is easier to do, since the
concepts are well known and documented.

Jessica T.
