Mobile disruptions and going mainstream

VC thoughts via Peter Cranstone

From Vinod Knosla: The mobile phone will be a mainstream personal computer.

From Roger McNamee: Betting on smart phones: The mobile device migration to smart phones from features phones will produce even greater disruption than PC industry moving from character mode to graphical interface.

Pretty much what I've been saying for the last year or two...

Speaking at UK CMG TEC Conference - May 19-21st 2008

UKCMG TEC 2008 is near Northampton in the UK. I'm giving two of the same presentations as I gave at the US CMG, the enterprise version of my Millicomputing talk, and a half day workshop on Unix/Linux Performance.

My old friend Phil Harman is also giving a talk on DTrace, and I'm staying in the UK for a few days after the conference to catch up with friends and family.

Usenix 08 - Tutorials and Invited Paper - Boston June 23-27

I'm going to USENIX '08

I'm giving the two tutorials that I have been presenting at CMG the last few years, but at Usenix in Boston. The tutorials are the latest update of my Solaris/Linux performance metrics and tuning class, and Capacity Planning with Free Tools.

I'm also giving an invited speaker talk on Millicomputing, and have a nice big time slot, so will cover both the mobile and enterprise aspects in some depth, with time for discussion.

I hope to see you there...
