I'm getting ready to leave for IBM's Impact Conference (think WebSphere) in Las Vegas, April 29 to May 3rd. I'll be speaking at two sessions, in case you'll be there:
One is the CSCC (Cloud Standards Customer Council) session on Monday, April 30 at 3:15 for a discussion on the state of cloud standards and the important role the CSCC plays. Melvin Greer, senior fellow and chief strategist, Cloud Computing, Lockheed Martin; chair, CSCC steering committee, and Amy Wohl, principal consultant of Wohl Associates (me!); CSCC steering committee member will lead the discussion and share their perspectives on the cloud computing standards landscape.
Also, I'll be presenting with Rob Sawyer of IBM on Wednesday from 10:15 to 12 on SOA and the Cloud.
Please consider joining me and my colleagues at both sessions.
Back on the home front (for me, that's New Jersey), I’m planning to attend the Vintage Computer Festival East 8.o, May 5-6 at the InfoAge Science Center, 2201 Marconi Road, Wall, NJ. They will be presenting six lectures, eight technical workshops, and two dozen hands on exhibits plus a book sale, a consignment sale, lunch, and museum tours. There will be keynotes on Saturday and Sunday at 12:30. On Saturday, Dr. Thomas Kurtz, who co-invented BASIC will be there and on Sunday, Daniel Kottke, Steve Jobs’ college buddy and Apple engineer.

Hope to see you there.
