CloudExpo Europe 2010: Not Your Father’s Prague

When my good friend Jeremy Geelan invited me to speak at CloudExpo Europe in Prague, Czech Republic my imagination went into overdrive.  Being a child of the 60’s and a retired US military officer, my memories of a dark time flooded my mind.  I imagined a throwback world, full of retired spies in old trench coats, trying to catch up to the 21st century. I am now, quite frankly, embarrassed by those prejudiced and dated thoughts. Prague is not only a wonderful and beautiful city, but served as an outstanding host  for CloudExpo Europe 2010. Jeremy, please invite me again!!

On a more capitalist note, Prague also proved to be an excellent place for business. Europe seems to be serious about understanding cloud computing and the attendees proved to be a skeptical bunch. In my session, International Collaboration on Cloud Computing, the questions centered on why the United States government was being so aggressive in its adoption of cloud computing. After doing a short demo of Data.gov and Flyontime.com, however, skepticism quickly gave way to excitement about the possibilities.

Two thumbs up for Prague and CloudExpo Europe 2010 !!
