Description: Live from OSCON! Aaron talks with Mark Collier (@sparkycollier) - OpenStack Foundation COO & Wayne Walls (@waynewalls) - Cloud Strategist at Rackspace, about OpenStack as a Foundation and the evolution of the project over the years. We also talk about the Unlocked road show product Wayne is currently working on

Topic 1 – Mark, tell us a little bit about your role in the Foundation and also about the greater foundation as an entity as well.  Wayne, you don’t work for the RackSpace Hybrid Cloud Team, what is your role and how is it different?

Topic 2 - Mark, we’ve probably all heard a good bit about OpenStack as a product and it is constantly evolving as we lead up to the Havana release.  Tonight is the “official” 3rd Birthday party here at OSCON.  How has the Foundation grown over the years and how has it evolved?  How did you manage the explosive growth?

Topic 3 – Project vs. Product vs. Service vs. Service Provider confusion- (I’m talking project today)  Your take?  What would you say are the keys to the success of the project?

Topic 4 – Do Again?  Not Do Again?  Hong Kong for next Summit?

Topic 5 - Wayne, you are doing something cool, this unlocked.io roadshow program.  I took a look at the slides and this isn’t about pushing a product, this feels like more of an education on devops and cloud era application and workload development
