AWS Ten Year Birthday – Risky Bet to Winning FormulaFurrier.orgbezosbet

Mon, 14 Mar 2016 22:55:59 +0000

When Amazon.com launched its first Web service 10 years ago today, offering storage in the cloud, people thought it was yet another crazy, profit-nuking idea from Chief Executive Jeff Bezos. Why on Earth, investors and analysts griped, was a company still struggling with a marginally profitable retail business embarking on what looked like an entirely … Continue reading "AWS Ten Year Birthday – Risky Bet to Winning Formula"(image)

I ran into this post by Cisco’s James Erquhart on Infra20.com titled – Is the Intercloud History Repeated? James writes:  definitely some of the same elements are appearing in the Cloud Computing ecosphere that once helped build the Internet. Specifically, I see three key initiatives that have an analog in the Internet’s past: 1.  The … Continue reading "Forget InterWebs Think InterClouds"(image)

The article today about Apple iPhone having video capabilities made me think about the scale of the net.  We have to see full scale global video by 2015.  However, first things first, we need an infrastructure revamp – Infrastructure 2.0. We need to handle the traffic explosion. Here is a great deep review of the … Continue reading "Internet Traffic Explosion by 2015 – Next Phase is Rich Media for Infrastructure 2.0"(image)

PEAK IT – Big Trend in Enterprise Information Technology – IT TrendFurrier.org

Tue, 27 Jan 2009 20:10:39 +0000

Some are saying that the polarization of IT is changing back to one side.  You decide.  Right now I’m digging into this further. Here is the paragraph to read. Peak IT occurs in an organization when investments in automation and productivity tools are crowded out by rising operations and management expenses. The result is a … Continue reading "PEAK IT – Big Trend in Enterprise Information Technology – IT Trend"(image)

Silicon Valley in Trouble? I Don’t Think So – A New Model Will ArriveFurrier.org

Mon, 26 Jan 2009 21:35:59 +0000

Comparing Silicon Valley to Detroit is ridiculous, but Dan Lyons does bring up a big issue worth discussing – innovation problem. Silicon Valley is not setup for long term research in a way that made it what it is today. We are seeing institutional research vaporize in front of our eyes. Checking around it’s apparent … Continue reading "Silicon Valley in Trouble? I Don’t Think So – A New Model Will Arrive"(image)

My Version of Yahoo’s Turnaround Plan – Focus on Management Team and New PlayersFurrier.org

Mon, 26 Jan 2009 21:20:06 +0000

Boomtown has a post speculating that Carol is taking the :bull by the horns” and charging hard to make changes. First up an earnings call that will surely be a bad report. In the NFL they talk about franchise players. In business and startups they talk about the management team. Here Yahoo has one clear … Continue reading "My Version of Yahoo’s Turnaround Plan – Focus on Management Team and New Players"(image)

NOTE:  Visit the siliconANGLE blog for a community of bloggers on Social Web and Technology Opinion and Analysis.  THANKS My kids have Facebook accounts and we have a Facebook policy in our house.

“Build It Because They Are There” – The Real Meaning of Cloud Connect – It’s About Getting Apps Up and RunningFurrier.org

Thu, 22 Jan 2009 18:22:09 +0000

As I sit in the CloudConnect Event at the computer history museum (twitter stream here), I was wondering about how to talk about cloud computing and the meaning of all this.  It became clear to me when I saw the Paul Buchheit post today on “Communicating with Code”. He writes (talking about his experience with … Continue reading "“Build It Because They Are There” – The Real Meaning of Cloud Connect – It’s About Getting Apps Up and Running"(image)

Thu, 22 Jan 2009 16:50:33 +0000

By Anton Wahlman American memories are apparently becoming shorter and shorter. Various misguided references to the alleged causes and cures of The Great Depression aside, people don’t remember that we once upon a time, less than 100 years ago, didn’t have a Federal Income Tax, that drugs were legal (and then alcohol prohibited), and that … Continue reading "Market Economics Work – How We Solved Our Gas Crisis – Hey Mom Look No Government"(image)

By Anton Wahlman My fellow Americans, change has arrived in Washington.  Not as much in the area of foreign policy and homeland defense, because I realize that my predecessor and distant cousin Dick Cheney had it right in the hours and days following 9/11 when he set this great Republic on a war footing to … Continue reading "Obama’s Inauguration Speech – Alternative Version"(image)

I just read Dan Lyons story backpeddling from his ‘toolness’ on CNBC regarding Steve Jobs.  I find it funny that he is calling Steve Jobs the corporate version of Barak Obama and that he can’t do anything wrong. Dan writes:  “The fact is, in the eyes of the media, Apple is the corporate equivalent of … Continue reading "Dan Lyons: Calls Silicon Valley Press Corps Idiots – Compares Steve Jobs to Obama"(image)
