@jeamland Well, yes, if I do decide to do the trip I’ll make sure to arrange something. ;)

@CameronWatt Well Her Majesty is a generous woman, so I’m sure she’d offer… Oh. Yeah.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to CameronWatt

@MarnieBristow That looks interesting, but probably isn’t tax deductible. ;)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MarnieBristow

@CameronWatt How many people would I have to club? ;)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to CameronWatt

You’re right, @Jester_Jeff, and my heart is telling me the Melbourne trip isn’t possible given this month’s cashflows. I’ll sleep on it.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Jester_Jeff

I’m not sure I want to go clubbing in Melbourne, though I do have a list of people to club.

via Janetter for Mac

I’m intending to arrange a Melbourne trip around @BusinessSpec’s 5th birthday party on Wed 21 Nov. Can I find a way to stay to the weekend?

via Janetter for Mac

Dear Melbourne People, is there anything of note happening next week Wed to Sat that I might want to be at? I’m trying to justify my trip.

via Janetter for Mac

@paulwallbank Yes that’s right, Paul. The Sydney Opera House has preserved me for posterity.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to paulwallbank

I have too many loose ends.

@nthorpe True, it’s one of the better descriptions I’ve been given. I’m going to gather them all for my website at some point.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to nthorpe

@SnarkyPlatypus Oh, je suis un peu inquiet pour vous. Peut-être que nous devrions en parler plus tard.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. C’est ma dernière soirée à Sydney avant de s’envoler pour les zones subtropicales. Et vous?

@simone_au Here are the VMware Cloud Index “infographics”, but the stat I cited was just in the live presentation. info.vmware.com/content/APAC_A…

@AlbionLoveDen Alas I have missed your deadline. I could hack your mail server I suppose…

Interview with @mroesch done. Heading back to the hotel for a quiet evening.

via Plume for Android

Heading upstairs at some Sydney CBD hotel to interview @mroesch.

via Janetter for Mac

“QUOTING ANONYMOUS OFFICIALS.” This story gets ever more clever.

via Janetter for Mac

So this is how I’m preparing for my interview with @mroesch from Sourcefire. SHOUTING AT THE INTERNET.

@Jester_Jeff @BernardKeane I think it’s also on record that 9/11 conspirators watched television and used toilet paper. THE BASTARDS.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Jester_Jeff

@6564828 @BernardKeane Well, according to that bastion of investigative journalism, the Illawarra Mercury… illawarramercury.com.au/story/1045245/…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to timfdavis

RT @BernardKeane: Fairfax calls sharing an email address “a trick known to terrorists”. FFS. [EMAIL! TECHNOLOGY KNOWN TO TERRORISTS.]

@R_Chirgwin @RatbagsDotCom Quintiles shouldn’t come into this. They breed like rabbits and leave their poo all over the kitchen.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin @RatbagsDotCom Percent? Or percentage points? CLARITY IS NEEDED HERE!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

@hartmant You’re more executive than I am… It’s a relative scale. Probably.

via Plume for Android in reply to hartmant

@R_Chirgwin @oberonsghost @patentology Thanks. So “a few percent” sounds like the right number.

via Plume for Android in reply to R_Chirgwin

Being reminded that a VMware executive described me as a cross between Dilbert and Hunter S Thompson.  

via Plume for Android

I probably misheard. Don’t need SDD to Follow the Moon.  

via Plume for Android

Follow the Moon computing: use software defined datacentre to move computing to where power is cheapest!  

via Plume for Android

Data centres use about 2% of the world’s energy, apparently. Or was that just the electricity?

@simone_au This lunch is the launch of the Cloud Index report, the article-writing journalists are here. Links to come later?

via Plume for Android in reply to simone_au

Data privacy / résidence / control remains #1 barrier to cloud adoption in Australia.  

via Plume for Android

28% have a poor understanding of the changing security landscape because of cloud. (Rest was non-poor?)

via Plume for Android

40% of orgs said there’s unsanctioned buying of SaaS outside IT department control. You are all very naughty!

via Plume for Android

RT @aimee_maree yes but we are still lagging behind on laws for data (Jurisdiction, sovereignty, Digital Will) these areas must catch up

via Plume for Android

Australia also virtualising storage faster than regional average. Australia more “advanced” and “refined” view of virtualisation.

via Plume for Android

77% of Australian organisations are focussed on private or hybrid clouds, compared to regional average of 31%.

via Janetter for Mac

John Brand, VP and Principal Analyst at Forrester Research, is explaining numbers. I shall come back to this and tweet sound bites.

via Janetter for Mac

Further stats will follow in a blog post or something.

via Janetter for Mac

Top drivers of cloud are optimise existing IT mgt and automation; simplify access to IT; support a mobile and flexible workforce.

via Janetter for Mac

Australia has the top cloud adoption rate in Asia Pacific for third consecutive year. 90% of senior IT practitioners have adopted.

Dr Stephen Herrod, VMware’s CTO and VP of R&Day begins.

via Plume for Android

VMware vForum 2012 Media Roundtable and Cloud Index Launch lunch begins. I shall hashtag it should you wish to filter it out.

via Plume for Android

Mobile: Wander up to the QT Hotel for the 1230 VMware vForum 2012 Media Roundtable and Cloud Index Launch lunch.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis beaucoup améliorée, je vous remercie. Le sommeil est une bonne chose. Et vous?

via Plume for Android in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Tue plan: 1230 VMware Cloud Index launch, QT Hotel; client Web loose ends; 1600 record interview Martin Roesch; quiet night, probably.

via Plume for Android

Sensible sleep in was sensible.
