Comment:
Removed repetition of Adrian per irc conversation.  Don't get me wrong, he's a great guy and
all...  :)

  
  The legacy of Google App Engine is still present within jclouds and is expressed by the
'driver' design which doesn't require threads. Supporting Rackspace started a legacy of cloud
portability which would soon extend to provisioning. As jclouds supports newer and cutting
edge cloud technologies, it is in a constant state of evolution.
  
- jclouds was founded in Shoreditch, London while Adrian Cole spent five months backpacking
between European Java User Groups which accounts for the initial population of European developers
and users within the community. The initial contributors to jclouds included Adrian Cole,
James Murty, Andrew Newdigate, and Andrew Phillips. Manik Surtani served as a mentor, and
there were a number of other advisers as well.

- Thanks in part to founder Adrian Cole's love of travel, jclouds has attracted committers
across North America, Europe, and Asia. The committers' technical and professional backgrounds
are diverse as well, with the range of experience being several months to 18+ years. The committers
are employed at both smaller companies such as Andrew Gaul from the startup Maginatics and
larger corporations like Adrian Cole from Netflix or Matt Stephenson from Google. Though there
are currently a handful of contributors from the same companies, none of the initial committers
are from the same company. jclouds committer Andrew Bayer is also a PMC member and committer
on the Apache projects Bigtop, Flume, Sqoop, and Whirr.

  The jclouds developers thrive upon the diversity of the community. The jclouds IRC channel
is always active, and the developers often collaborate on fixes and changes in the code. They
are always happy to answer users' questions as well.
