Coop Cloud w/ OpenStack + Bitcoin
I’m a meat and potatoes guy - smart and simple is my philosophy. If I don’t know an answer to a question, I’ll admit as much and go find someone who does know, pick their brain, and figure out how that relates to the things I do know. If I know the answer, I’ll teach others what I know, and do it without hesitation.
For me, this is my dream - to create, design, implement, market and write about technology.
I wrote some installer scripts that live on the StackGeek website. Although they install a very simple version of OpenStack, and aren't intended for production use, over 15K people have had good success with them.
I'm also working on a highly distributed cloud framework called Utter.io. It joins Bitcoin and OpenStack together to form a framework by which software can be deployed in a private cloud by people who don't have access to that cloud. It's basically a lightweight implementation of federation.
I've never worked for a non-profit. I was a board member of Loggly, being the founder and CEO. I'm also a coder, so there's that. I'm good at listening and making decisons.
Hopefully putting a kernel of an idea into circulation where it will transfom itself into a movement in a postitive direction.
Let's get the public cloud providers to sort around their API implementations. It's a disaster out there.
