Subject RE: Barriers to awareness
Date Mon, 14 Apr 2014 17:09:23 GMT
Ok, here's what we'll do it. I'll write it and post it on my either my InformationWeek or Forbes
column depending on how it turns out.

A little bit of crowd sourcing of some of the questions for the piece. 
Please help by sending me some thoughts.

How has the landscape for Cloud infrastructure changed?
Is there room for closed platforms? 
How do you make money in a commoditized space?
Apps and Platforms, any comments?
Devs and Devops.. Are they the key to winning?
Community vs Code? Which matters more?
What does the future hold? 

I'll try to write it over the next few days.

I can't write it because of conflicts of interest and I doubt BenK will help our cause. We
could try Louis Columbus st Forbes? What's the angle?

Perhaps something along the lines of:

Open Source communities come in many different flavors.  While big $
from vendors that want to sell you something might get the press, often
it's worth considering how engaged the users of the software are in the
community itself.
