You are not on the bandwagon yet? You are so behind the times! Haven’t you heard that the web is now social, and user-centric, your customers are in charge, they create and remix and share and rate and activity stream and manage you, the vendor, and you still haven’t implemented the Open Pile!
Ehm, I mean the Open Stack, sorry about that, a slip of the tongue here. The community has been working together hand in hand to define these exciting new standards, singing kumbaya all the time, how can you not have implemented them and look your manager into the eye?
If I knew how to draw cartoons, I’d have a field day here.
No wonder Facebook is winning with a proprietary stack.
As we go into IIW next week, guys, it’s time to get real. It’s either we cut 80%+ off this pile, and make the remainder actually work, or give up. I just hope there won’t be proposals for more protocols next week. What about we all propose which 90% of our favorite pet projects we are willing to kill? The alternative, I’m afraid, is the way UNIX has been going in the face of first NT, and then Linux. “Open” means nothing if it’s just a pile.
P.S. Thanks to Kaliya for encouraging me to get this off my chest and annoy some people if it has to be that way.
