What's up with "cloud"?

Tonight I’m giving the opening presentation for the newly formed Austin Cloud User’s Group. The idea is to provide a base-line for “cloud computing.” With me, that usually means answering the questions “why bother?” and “what can I do with it?”

The EventBrite ticketing is closed, but here’s the details of the meeting tonight nonetheless. Also, while there’s no site for the ACUG, there’s a Google Group to keep up with the ACUG. Also, they use the hashtag #ACUG.

The presentation is embedded above, or see the listing at Slideshare for download options and such.

Disclosure: several companies mentioned int he presentation are RedMonk clients. See the RedMonk client list.

It's kind of a synergistic gumbo of things that are on the face of them not necessarily related… But in reality, you end up bumping against all of them at the same time.
