O’Reilly’s Strata comes to Europe, with a very British opening

O’Reilly’s Big Data extravaganza, Strata, left its native U.S. for the first time this week, coming to London for two days of data; the big, the open, the structured, the unstructured, and the undecided. Whilst many of the companies and issues are the same, whether you’re in London, California or New York City, there are...
The Americans are Coming

The Americans are Coming

This October, two great US events are making their first forays into Europe. O’Reilly‘s big data conference, Strata, reaches London on 1-2 October. Then GigaOM‘s cloud computing event, Structure, hits Amsterdam on 16-17 October. I’ve attended both in the States (see disclaimer), and look forward to seeing how each sets about fusing the best elements...

International Cloud Computing piece for GigaOM Pro

I have been a fan of (and subscriber to) GigaOM‘s analyst site, GigaOM Pro, for some time.

Looking back at Powered by Cloud conference

Clouds of a rather different sort complicated things at the start of the Powered by Cloud conference in London last week. As you may have heard, ‘unprecedented’ (but repeatedly forecast) snowfall brought the UK’s capital grinding to an ignominious halt. Despite the absence of a handful of the speakers, the only person who knew how...

Lots of London

In a previous role I used to spend 2-3 days each week in London, spending 4-5 hours per day on trains that (then) lacked today’s power and wifi. Over the past few years I’ve had far less reason to regularly visit the city, but those trips certainly seem to be on the rise once more....
