Summary from the first day...


Good morning, Folks...

backstage again, a little work to be done, as not that many emails coming in... (you're more Web 2.0 this year than last year, more IM and more SMS Text Messages)

So, I hope to have some time to comment on the sessions I did visit yesterday...

The best, that I did visit, was Alec Muffett, who sadly enough couldn't be here, because he has a burial to attend in the UK. He did a session with a title like: What will your customer look like in 2012, and how to sell that to your customer. He did do some nice maths... Look for example at the rate the storage in iPods kept growing throughout the last years. Continue that, and in 1012 an iPod will have a PetaByte of storage. And add the growth in network bandwidth, that same iPod will be one PetaBit, so he called that iPod the petaPod. Think about that... ;-) What will you actually do with all the storage? Short idea, he came up with: Put ZFS on that device, rent the storage out to others, spread your own data across the network, being encrypted, so that at least 4 to 5 safe copies of all your data is out there somewhere on the net... That would remove the need for big datacenters, as the big storage is spread securely all over the world... (Guess, you will not loose that petaPod... ;-) )

There were other sessions, but this one was the most gorgeous, I had the luck to grab the slides and the recording, so I can enjoy that again and again... Alec, sad, you're not here, we do miss you!

Matthias
