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.
