Description: Aaron and Brian celebrate Episode #100 with a roundtable of their favorite guests & co-hosts - Christian Reilly (@reillyusa), Joe Onisick (@jonisick), Peder Ulander (@ulander), Amy Lewis (@CommsNinja), and Nick Weaver (@lynxbat). They discuss why Cloud sucks, how to save OpenStack companies, how many clouds the world really needs, and question if the future of all trade shows is in Portland.

- HUGE Thank You to our audience
- Any good stories from VMworld?

  • Topic 4 - With unlimited funding, what technology startup would you create today?
  • Topic 5 - What if the world evolves to just AWS, Google and SaaS applications? What would be the interesting jobs or technology in five to 10 years?  [Smartphones are just Apple and Android]
  • Topic 6 - When vendor margins drop by 50 percent, or everything goes to the cloud, will all conferences be held in Portland? What's the new role of communities with cloud?
