Scale11x Interview: Jorge Castro – Juju

I was asked if I would be interested in conducting some interviews of speakers who are going to speak at The Eleventh Annual Southern California Linux Expo (Scale11x) February 22-24, 2013 Hilton Los Angeles International Airport and needless to say I jumped at the opportunity.

This is my first interview with Jorge Castro of Canonical and we discuss Juju, MaaS, Ubuntu Cloud, and his upcoming presentations and workshop.

You can catch Jorge and learn more about Juju at the Eleventh Annual Southern California Linux Expo, February 22-24, http://www.socallinuxexpo.org/blog/interview-jorge-castro-juju

Public Speaking

I was asked to speak at a small event here is San Diego about a week ago. I quickly came to the realization that I am not much of a public speak, sober anyways. It's not that I was nervous or anything, I just suck at speaking to large crowds.

Now, it's typical for me to rant and rave and yap about myself here on my blog, but I was extremely surprised and honored when Michael Baum, the CEO of the company I did the speaking for (Splunk), gave me a generous write up on his blog.

ONE MAN'S TRASH…

Just some cool art work. Could have done without the peeing sculptures but never the less, incredible. The shadows you see on the wall are being created by the strategically placed trash.
