Topic 1 - Looking back on 2013, what’s your biggest story or biggest take away? (AWS, OpenStack, NSA)

Topic 2 - Where do you think the industry made the most gains in cloud computing and where do you still see the biggest gaps (or opportunities)? (SDN, IaaS became plumbing)

Topic 3 - As you talk to people in the industry, around the world, how much do you see the spread of the Silicon Valley mindset and technology profile?

Topic 4 - Let’s talk about OpenStack. Was 2013 a good year, a bad year or just a year in the evolution? (Open Source VMware vCloud, who’s making money?)

Topic 5 - Traditional vendors vs. public cloud (which are sometimes the same). Who do you think is better positioned and what do you think each considers “success in 2014”?
Topic 6 - Moving on to 2014, what big things do you expect to happen (if any)? (SDN with VMware & Cisco, OpenStack conslidation)

Topic 7 - We’re getting ready to move into YEAR 4 of The Cloudcast. Can you believe it? What do we have planned for our listeners in the new year?
