You might be a cloud computing expert if…

And let it be noted that there is no more delicate matter to take in hand, nor more dangerous to conduct, nor more doubtful in its success, than to set up as the leader in the introduction of changes.  For he who innovates will have for his enemies all those who are well off under the existing order of things, and only lukewarm supporters in those who might be better off under the new.

Niccolò Machiavell

I’m taking a break from trying to be useful. You know how the song goes:

  • “If the top three items in your browser history include the words “twitter”, “innovation” or “interoperability”, you might be a cloud computing expert”
  • “If you’ve ever asked Amazon to Open Source their API, you might be a cloud computing expert”
  • “If you think ‘Open Sourcing’ an API makes any sense, you might be a cloud computing expert”
  • “If you think there is a difference between ‘business investors’ and ‘speculators’, you might be a cloud computing expert”
  • “If you think cloud computing will save the rain forest, you might be a cloud computing expert”
  • “If you believe building in EC2 always has a lower TCO, you might be a cloud computing expert”
  • “If you are not preparing for ‘The Trough of Disillusionment’, you might be a cloud computing expert”
  • “If you just can’t get enough *aaS, you might be a cloud computing expert”
  • “If you want to debate public vs private, you might be a cloud computing expert”
  • “If you spend a day talking about which Star Wars character you should be and it is a good day at work, you might be a cloud computing expert”
  • “If you understood more than two points on this list, you’re def. a fscking cloud computing expert”

I’m sure this list is much longer, I’m just trying to do my part and get you started…

Make us all proud…
