Structure 09: Put Cloud Computing To Work

GigaOM has organized an exciting event on cloud computing, Structure 09, on 06/25/2009. I will be at the event as a guest blogger and will be part of the energy and excitement. GigaOM has managed to put on an excellent schedule packed with great speakers including Marc Benioff, Michael Stonebraker, Jonathan Helliger, Greg Papadopoulos, Werner Vogels, and many others.
