Behind every cloud service or cloud-based solution, there are real people...
A robust ecosystem of solutions providers has emerged around cloud computing.
But who are the CEOs & CTOs behind those providers, who are the internal and
external entrepreneurs driving companies involved in the Cloud, who are the
leading engineers, developers, analysts, researchers, marketing
professionals, authors...who, in short, are the people behind the cloud?
This list will be updated weekly between now and November 4-7, 2013, when
13th Cloud Expo | Cloud Expo Silicon Valley opens its doors in the Santa
Clara Convention Center, in the heart of California's Silicon Valley. Here
are some highly prominent "Cloud People" to kick off with...

Two days before the single largest drop in the history of the stock market,
Jason Calacanis - former Weblogs Inc. co-founder (and GM of Netscape) - wrote
a lengthy blog post aimed at inspiring folks at startup companies "to get
focused and to save as many as possible from hitting the wall." As Calacanis
reminded readers of his blog, "Great entrepreneurs build value and
market-share in down markets."
We recently asked a selection of the industry's brightest minds what their
own advice would be in these troubled times, and assembled it into a

Now that the web is well on its way to becoming more responsive, smoother and
reliable - and correspondingly more enjoyable to work with - SYS-CON Media's
AJAXWorld Magazine - edited by Dion Hinchcliffe (pictured left) - stops up
and tries to "freeze-frame" the moment. We take a look at the question that
is presently on the mind of hundreds and thousands of software developers,
architects, IT managers, and CXOs alike: "What's So Special About AJAX?"

Fundamentally, the “Ajax” phenomena reflects an “eye

At the end of each year, when SYS-CON informally polls its globe-girdling
network of software developers, industry executives, commentators, investors,
writers, and editors, our question is always the same: where's the industry
going next year?
Every time, the answers are surprisingly different from the year before, and
of course throw light not just on where the industry is going but also how
it's going to get there, why, because of who, within what kind of time-scale
- all that good stuff.

I am always being told off by i-technologists for quoting Picasso as having
said that computers are useless. But I still love his reasoning? "Because
they can only give you answers."
Picasso, like AJAXWorld Magazine, liked questions. So we thought we would
share with you what some of the world's leading rich Internet application
pioneers are thinking may be the next questions that we need to see answered.
From that readers can themselves infer where AJAX is headed.
