    Hello. I recruit for a recently-funded, cloud computing start-up named 10gen, and want to get their need for a Technology Connector/Evangelist on your radar. It may be of interest to you or to someone in your network. 10gen’s a new platform-as-a-service (PaaS) technology designed to help developers quickly and easily build dynamic, scalable, mission critical web sites and applications. Thought leaders with track records from DoubleClick are leading this effort and were you or a colleague keen on early stage equity, 10gen could be the play to make.

    Are you a developer who blogs actively (and comments on other blogs)?
    Do you love presenting at a conference as much as writing code?
    Have you meaningfully contributed to an open source project?
    Do you like meeting new people?
    Do you relish explaining how something works?
    Do you enjoy traveling around the country (the world)?

    If you can answer yes to all of the above then we have a great opportunity for you.
    You’ll connect the 10gen team and its technology with developers around the world. The software will be open source and you’ll be in charge of facilitating the growth of a community.

    ABOUT 10gen.

    NEW YORK, NY- July 21st, 2008 – 10gen (http://www.10gen.com/), creator of a new Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) technology that helps developers more quickly and easily build dynamic, scalable Web sites and applications, today announced $1.5 million in Series A financing from Union Square Ventures. The cloud computing companyaims to provide significant time and cost saving advantages by allowing developers to focus on solving business problems and delivering functionality rather than expending effort on infrastructure, scaling and system management.

    10gen is part of AlleyCorp (http://www.alleycorp.com/).

    Best Wishes,

    Hi Markus,

    thanks for setting up the FZI Cloud Wiki. It’s a great resource I refer to in my article about cloud computing at http://www.agileweboperations.com/who-else-wants-understand-cloud-computing.

    As I’m from Munich, it would be great to hear from you as our interests seem to have a nice overlap ;-)

    trying to improve my HostingMatrix comparison page I discovered your blog then your wiki on CloudComputing. Extremely interesting resource especially the TCO material.

    Anyway I think you might be interested in my idea on “Cloud computing market auto selectors” that I slowly started to develop few months ago.

    Hallo Markus,

    ich schreibe gerade an meiner Diplomarbeit zum Thema Cloud Computing, kämpfe jedoch mit dem Problem, dass wissenschaftliche Literatur zu dem Thema leider noch recht spärlich vorhanden ist.

    Vielleicht könnte man sich diesbezüglich mal austauschen??

    Verwenden Sie Amazon Web Services? Sie daran interessiert sein könnten, um meine eigenen tool CloudBerry Explorer, die dabei hilft, um S3 und CloudFront. Es ist eine Freeware. http://cloudberrylab.com/

    p.s. Ich war in Karlsruhe, die schöne ruhige Stadt
