    Nice post Eric and a good debate for any panel too. What is the correct approach? Standards First or Adoption First. Good topic for people to ponder.

    Although I agreed with you a year ago, the time is ripe for standardisation efforts.

    A proprietary API is making advances as a defacto standard for cloud infrastructure and as such we could be staring down the barrel of another era not unlike the Microsoft monopoly.

    As an aside, I am finding the quality of CloudAve posts to have dropped off somewhat recently. This is the second post that has recently had me wondering what I am doing here.
