Cloud Expo Early Bird Savings
A robust ecosystem of solutions providers is emerging around cloud computing.
Here, SYS-CON's Cloud Computing Journal expands its list of most active
players in the fast-emerging Cloud Ecosystem, from the 'mere' 100 we
identified back in January of this year, to half as many again - testimony,
if any further were needed, to the fierce and continuing growth of the
"Elastic IT" paradigm throughout the world of enterprise computing.
Editorial note: The words in quotation marks used to describe the various
services and solutions in this round-up are in every case taken from the Web
sites cited. As ever we encourage software engineers, developers, IT
operations managers, and new/growing companies in every case to "suck it and
see" by downloading or otherwise sampling the offering in question for

Ever since I first published here my tentative list of Top 50 Bloggers on
Cloud Computing it became clear that an expansion would be needed before too
long. Thanks to community feedback via my Twitter account
(http://twitter.com/jg21) here goes - just three months before Cloud
Expo Silicon Valley (November 7-10) - with an expanded roster, listed as
before in alphabetical order since I am making no attempt at this stage to
rank the various blogs, merely to map - and celebrate - their existence.

I am always being told off by i-technologists for quoting Picasso as having
said that computers are useless. But I still love his reasoning? "Because
they can only give you answers."
Picasso, like AJAXWorld Magazine, liked questions. So we thought we would
share with you what some of the world's leading rich Internet application
pioneers are thinking may be the next questions that we need to see answered.
From that readers can themselves infer where AJAX is headed.
What are the top questions to ask next about AJAX?

Is AJAX fit to serve as spear carrier for next-generation Web technology?
That question, asked by the San Diego Business Journal in March 2007, was
answered by the sheer scale of the last two AJAXWorld Conference & Expos, in
March (New York) and September (Santa Clara). The undisputed answer is "Yes!"
So many companies have jumped aboard the AJAX train that when we wanted to do
an informal survey the other day on upcoming Web and Internet technology
trends, I was able to quickly compile a list of 800 different comp... (more)
