Speaking in Tech: Cloud, Ellen Pao and ... er, Jeremy Clarkson

Indiana — you’ve made a powerful enemy today, my friend

Hello, good morning, and welcome to another edition of Speaking in Tech, hosted by our old friends Greg Knieriemen and Ed Saipetch. Sarah Vela is out of the loop this week but will be back soon.

This week we scratch the surface of the Ellen Pao lawsuit (what did it actually achieve?), the tech world's reaction to Indiana's new "religious freedom" law, Amazon's unlimited storage (keeping things out of it could become a whole lot harder - and how much can companies charge for it?), and PayPal jumping on OpenStack.

Oh yeah, and Jeremy Clarkson's untimely (but justified) departure from Top Gear.

This week's guest is the founder and CTO of Blue Box (a Seattle-based cloud technology company) Jesse Proudman, discussing issues surrounding private and public clouds.
