Sorry I didn't make it.

For those interested in more cloud computing, here's a WTIA (formerly  
WSA (formerly Washington Software Association)) event...


Here's a direct quote from that page...

The WTIA is pleased to bring to the Puget Sound a comprehensive look  
at Cloud Computing.  Through this multi part series attendees will  
learn both fundamental and advanced concepts of Cloud Computing as  
seen through the eyes of industry leaders.
Cloud Computing is the buzz of the industry.  Whether as a way to  
lower computing costs, test an application, or provide a more scalable  
solution, Cloud Computing offers a whole range of new opportunities  
for software developers and IT professionals.  Anyone running a web  
service business or managing an IT enterprise system should understand  
the opportunities and challenges of this new computing model.

Part I: Cloud Computing Fundamentals

Aaron Kimball of Cloudera will be providing a high-level overview of  
cloud computing and explain how this computing model leads to more  
effective and flexible methods to deal with data.  Aaron will talk  
about ways that computation has changed and evolved in recent years,  
as well as discuss examples of commercial and open-source systems that  
companies currently use to leverage the cloud.

After you’ve learned the basics, Jason Lochhead, CTO of Terremark  
Hosting Services Division will be provide a live demonstration of an  
Enterprise Cloud platform, showing how servers can be configured,  
deployed and managed on-demand from a flexible pool of computing  
resources. He’ll also discuss examples of real-world implementations  
and showcase how companies are leveraging the cloud for their business.
