From a personal perspective, pretty much the only thing I care about with this is Flickr. I should go through my Yahoo mail archives at some point and export anything I care about but that's about it.

Now, I don't really expect Flckr to go away even if it's generally fallen into the category of purely photo-oriented sites that have largely languished--but a topic for another day.

I have a lot of photos on there but it would mostly be a matter of switching over to a new site and republishing from Lightroom. Not a trivial job but not really a massive one. I've never been heavily into Flickr "community" and can't say I'd personally feel the loss of not having that record.

That said, the big value of Flickr is all the public domain and creative commons photographs that it hosts, many of which could disappear into the ether under some scenarios. This would be a huge loss both as an ongoing resource that people like myself use and as a historical record.
US telecoms giant Verizon Communications is to buy Yahoo's core internet business for $5bn (£3.8bn), according to media reports.

Also includes discussion of IaaS/PaaS convergence based on something I wrote a couple years ago. I've also touched on some of this more recently.
Since Red Hat settled on its “gears” orchestration model for applications a few years back, the enterprise has, to some extent, gravitated to the Kubernetes model championed by Google and facilitated by Docker, Last year’s release of Red Hat’s OpenShift 3, the company’s Platform-as-a-Service software, addressed these preferences, adding support for Docker. And since that time, Red …

As we see requirements for persistent storage and other "enterprise" features in cloud-native apps, the traditional app vs. cloud-native app dichotomy is increasingly breaking down.
Metaphors and models have finite lifespans.

At Red Hat Summit in June, Katrinka McCallum and Jay Ferrandini shared their experiences and lessons learned in the process of rolling out DevOps in the Product and Technologies organization. They call it their banana/pickle story, a reference to the pre-DevOps challenge of delivering to users the banana that they asked for instead of the pickle that they didn't want.

This was one of the highest-rated sessions in the IT Strategy track and Summit and is a must watch if you're interested in case studies about how real organizations are implementing DevOps, the challenges they face, and the benefits they gain.

Cloud strategy at Red Hat
Introduction
I'm in the cloud product strategy group at Red Hat. Prior to Red Hat, I wrote hundreds of research notes, was frequently quoted in publications like The New York Times on a wide range of IT topics, and advised clients on product and marketing strategies. Earlier in my career, I was responsible for bringing a wide range of computer systems, from minicomputers to large UNIX servers, to market while at Data General. Among other hobbies, I do a lot of photography and enjoy the outdoors.
