Cloud Computing meets Pop Culture!!

If you'd like to rock some The Cloudcast gear, you can head over to the Cloudcast Store and get the look that will make your friends jealous of your style and knowledge. Or just be an awesome guest on our show someday and we'll send you some schwag as a thank you

When Aaron and I started The Cloudcast (.NET) we had no expectations about who might listen to it. We just didn't want to make complete fools of ourselves. Needlessly to say, we were shocked and a little bit excited when this picture showed up in our inbox. We had no idea he was into Cloud Computing, but I suppose it makes sense. He is huge on Twitter and YouTube.

So from Aaron and I, we extend a big welcome to our newest fan. Maybe someday when he's not on tour, we can have The Biebs on to talk about the massive Cloud Computing scalability needed to keep his fan engaged.

Topics of Discussion on The Cloudcast - Part I

I was playing around with today and plugged in The Cloudcast (.net) to see what sort of Cloud Map it would create. 

Interesting enough. I saved this for two reasons:
  1. We'll revisit this every couple of months to see how much the discussions have changed.
  2. The shape reminded me of a wavelength that we frequently see when editing the audio of the podcast. The shape represents the "breadth" that Brian takes right before he asks a question or starts a sentence. It's an annoying habit (we all have some speaking quirk), but luckily for our listeners they usually won't hear it on the final version.
