This blog comments on a variety of technology news, trends, and products and how they connect. I'm in Red Hat's cloud product strategy group in my day job although I cover a broader set of topics here. This is a personal blog; the opinions are mine alone.
In the first episode of a new Cloudy Chat feature, I sit down for a free-wheeling discussion with one of my Red Hat colleagues. Today, my co-host is Ellen Newlands who is the product manager for identity management at Red Hat. We start with self-driving cars and other autonomous vehicles and move onto the Internet-of-Things against a background of security and privacy implications in all of this.
I'm in the cloud product strategy group at Red Hat. Prior to Red Hat, I wrote hundreds of research notes, was frequently quoted in publications like The New York Times on a wide range of IT topics, and advised clients on product and marketing strategies. Earlier in my career, I was responsible for bringing a wide range of computer systems, from minicomputers to large UNIX servers, to market while at Data General. Among other hobbies, I do a lot of photography and enjoy the outdoors.
