When we look back a hundred years, we can easily spot norms of the time which today we would consider barbarous. Racial segregation and discrimination, the suppression of women's freedom in society and colonialism were all acceptable and normal in 1915.

What aspects of today's norms will people reject in future? Animal rights would be top of my list. We continue to assume some sort of manifest destiny, some sort of preeminent right to the resources of this world that trumps the needs of our fellow species.
 
"The mental capacities of the great apes, and their emotional lives, suffice to justify including them within what we called the community of equals."

amen.

The relevance of what some iron age goat herders think about the world seems minimal to me.

Delighted with Dell's choice of venue for their OpenStack soirée this evening. We agree entirely - the magic is definitely all in the charms!

Always a great view. Been there (station 5 of the climb, if I am not mistaken).

Great to be making a splash in Singapore today, talking OpenStack in Action with partners like 1-Net. And we managed to check off an item on Claire's list yesterday with high tea at Raffles!

Accelerating development means giving developers the tools to be great wherever they need to run them. Delighted to see Juju charms of the AppScale PAAS, now instantly available on every cloud. Enjoy!

Fantastic standing waves on the cloud deck over the Irish Sea. And speaking of clouds, after Vancouver it's clear there are going to be a LOT more orange ones :)

Delighted to offer usage-based pricing for all the new software-defined storage technologies. Also delighted to offer the support plans of great innovators like SwiftStack and Nexenta, and most of all delighted that we'll send a percentage of all service-based revenues for these storage support contracts to the upstream developers. Three big steps forward in the Linux support model.

What a great week's Ubuntu Summit Online! Between the teams and communities blazing the phone and PC convergence trail, those making a whole new snappy Ubuntu for smart connected devices, and the charmers charming all things cloud, it's a fun time to part of the Ubuntu story.
 
Just had a great hour-long session talking about Unity 8's code and how to get started hacking on it

Companies building larger private clouds often want to buy the same hardware that runs the biggest public clouds, and now they can!
 
This week, QCT and Canonical extended their partnership to next-generation managed cloud. Read our original announcement here.

We are products of our complex history. To suppress history and historical figures is to lose your own identity, and worse, to lose the memory upon which change is built.
Professor Jonathan Jansen, President of the South African Institute of Race Relations, has described the  #RhodesMustFall movement as “anti-educational and anti-progressive” and questions the justifications given by those who have benefited from Rhodes Scholarships to now “spit” in the face of British colonialist Cecil John Rhodes.

This is 'Hana Fusa', and a favourite stop for Claire and me when we're visiting Kyoto. Have to recommend the bacon sandwich. Enjoy the coffee so much that I felt inspired to take a siphon home!
