We got into a lot of interesting discussions. There was a breakout discussing what a "CloudOS" might look like. I think PaaS, powered by IaaS and deterministic configuration management systems will replace the self-service components of "operating systems" and operating systems will literally be systems which are operating as implementations on top of platform services. I think platform services will become more flexible and interoperable (i.e. open source, open-standards) as private implementations of operating systems become more application oriented. Distribution models that are based on pre-packaged, pre-compiled code are likely to be replaced by deterministic, data-driven, configuration managed, self-serviceable, flexible, multi-tenant platforms which instantiate application oriented systems in operation. It may also mean that embedded parts of a system are going to be much more hardware oriented and less application oriented as they probably should have been all along.

I'm at Akamai Technologies (akamai.com) in San Mateo. I'm trying to have great Meetup groups have their meetings at our office.
I was wondering if you can have your next Meetup meeting at our office in San Mateo. Your speakers can give your presentation, then our engineers can give their short presentation. We can provide pizza and/or snacks, and beer and other drinks of course. :-)
Please let me know how we can do this.
