re: Netflix's Cloud Contest: More Companies Should Follow Suit
Perhaps I missed it, but I don't see where Joe said the contest itself is a bad idea. He just said he found it overly AWS-centric. of course, that is, as you say Netflix's right. But Joe is a consistent proponent of open standards and portability (in fact, he just did long-form defenses of standardization and of cloud standards) and also has a right to push that agenda forward. The two are not mutually exclusive points. Lorna Garey, IW Reports

We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
