For those that couldn’t participate to past week’s webinar, here is the recording of Mark Collier and Jonathan Bryce presenting the draft mission of OpenStack Foundation and its roadmap. (The audio starts around minute 2:50). A total of 86 people participated to the events, 51 on Thursday and 35 on Friday. Since the chat was not visible to every participant, we’re disclosing the complete logs of the chat for both events, unedited . All questions were addressed by Mark and Jonathan. We’re looking for a different tool to use for future webinars.

Presenting OpenStack Foundation mission and roadmap [webinar]

January 10th, 2012 — 12:39pm

Jonathan Bryce and Mark Collier will host two webinars to illustrate the draft mission for the future OpenStack Foundation. The draft was published on http://wiki.openstack.org/Governance/Foundation/ and it’s the fist building block of the organisation that was announced in Boston. They will be available to answer questions about the roadmap and deadlines proposed for the project.  We believe a live conversation will complement the online discussion on the foundation mailing list. We picked the times of the webinars to accommodate the needs of people living across the world and we picked the technology that is most accessible. You can use your favourite operating system or dial in using toll free numbers for virtually anywhere in the world. If you encounter problems please let us know.

The first webinar will be held on Thursday Jan 12, 2012 at 06:00 PM CST (register here https://cc.readytalk.com/r/ogxx717wjy06) and the following day on Friday, Jan 13, 2012 at 9:00 AM CST (register here https://cc.readytalk.com/r/9o9bdh6hb3vn).

OpenStack – The Best Sounding Cloud

July 5th, 2011 — 4:12pm

For those with some time to spend on non-critical items…

At the OpenStack Project Glance webinar a few weeks back there was discussion about the music being played while everyone waited for the webinar to start. Jay Pipes graciously informed everyone that I was a composer and that the music was mine, thus everyone was really insulting me. This lead to some community members contacting me to see if I really did write the music which only enhanced Jay’s hijinks. The truth is that I can’t even hear music very well as notes all sound the same to me. The company running our webinar tool is responsible for the music and we have provided feedback from our community about their music selection.

Anyway, the emails with the community members led to the idea of creating an OpenStack theme or jingle that we could use on our website for example. If Intel, Microsoft, and other companies can leverage the power of music to associate their brand with customers why not OpenStack. One community member, Mike Mazarick has supplied the first entry for community consideration:

Sample OpenStack Jingle (6 seconds)

I encourage community members with musical talent to submit their ideas to myself for posting on the blog or in the comment section. We can then re-visit all the submissions in a few weeks and vote for the winning OpenStack jingle. Looking forward to everyone’s ideas.
