I’m thrilled that O’Reilly is putting on a great performance and operations conference, so I’m especially happy to be speaking there. I’m on a great-sounding panel, Success: A Survival Guide. I’m sure you’ll hear about our first few years where, like clockwork on the same days each year, we got massively hammered with traffic and what we did to handle it.

If you’re going to the conference, come say “Hi!”. I’ll be wearing a red SmugMug hat, as always. šŸ™‚

Oh, and if you haven’t signed up yet, use ‘vel08js’ to get a nice discount. šŸ™‚

    That’s a cool pic, Don. Like that a lot.

    Hey Joe! Long time! How’re things? I’m still carrying the Duke torch… can’t wait šŸ™‚

    Don – be sure to attend the talk by Rich Wolski on Eucalyptus. He’s from UC Santa Barbara, and one smart dude. They’ve basically done EC2@home for folks wanting to setup their own infrastructure.

    @Brent: Yeah, I’m pretty stoked to see Eucalyptus. Already been tweeting about it: http://twitter.com/DonMacAskill/statuses/828205174 šŸ™‚

    Coolness. After you hear the presentation and meet Rich, we should talk. He and I have been tossing about ideas and we’d welcome your input.

    Don, is there a transcript or video of your speech available?
