Data Driven Talk

Data Driven Talk
Comments, and opinions about data, data storage, cloud computing, and modern IT infrastructures. Recorded whenever and wherever I can, published on an irregular basis, directly from the field without editing and while things are happening. A disorganized and unstructured format of very short 5-minute episodes that are easy to consume while on the move.
