Is there a silver lining in cloud computing?

VCs, developers, and IT users are looking for silver linings in cloud computing. Users are hoping to save on IT costs and get into production at a faster pace, developers are hoping for customers for cloud computing products and services, and VCs hope to make money on investments in cloud computing startups.

VCs, developers, and IT users are looking for silver linings in cloud computing. Users are hoping to save on IT costs and get into production at a faster pace, developers are hoping for customers for cloud computing products and services, and VCs hope to make money on investments in cloud computing startups. All three were represented at the first Cloud Summit conference on Tuesday.

I spent hours driving to the conference, filming it, and then many more hours editing and distilling about 18 minutes out of more than 4 hours of content. (I won't mention the hours of video conversion and upload!)

The sessions were good but some people complained to me that some were outright commercials. Opsource was one of those companies that I heard complaints about. If presenters abuse the time of conference goers then that should be pointed out, imho.

Here is a good written account of the conference:
