Standing Cloud posts
Starting pretty much immediately, we're looking to add some talented folks to our team to focus on diving into the communities behind the open source applications we support (81 and counting). If that's you, please get in touch with a resume and cover letter. Or forward on to anyone you know. Thanks!
Here's the gig description:
Our latest release is code-named "Officer Eddie," the blockhead who accompanies Chief Wiggum on almost every mission.

We're psyched to announce another sponsorship of Startup Weekend: In the fall, we tested out a partnership by giving away two months of our service to attendees of the Denver Startup Weekend and learned some things from the event.
Now, we're sponsoring another Startup Weekend in our own backyard, here in Boulder, where Startup Weekend was founded in 2007 by local tech evangelist Andrew Hyde (now on a personal world tour). The event takes place Feb. 25-27 in the TechStars Bunker.

Yesterday, after two months of adding solution providers to the Application Network, we announced it to the world, along with a comment from one of our solution provider partners:
We've got "cloud" in our name because without the cloud, we wouldn't be able to deliver what you really need: business results through software.

The most difficult thing about the cloud is agreeing on a definition.
In a webinar presentation last week on the “State of the Cloud,” Forrester Research and cloud security company Symplified defined cloud as “a standardized IT capability (incorporating service, software and infrastructure), delivered via Internet technology, in a pay-per-use, self-service way” and offered by both software and hardware companies. The presentation covered everything from cloud-washing to the driving forces behind cloud adoption world-wide.
