It's another episode of El Reg's weekly enterprise tech podcast, hosted by Ed Saipetch, Greg Knieriemen and Sarah Vela. Ed's in the driving seat this week as a jetlagged Greg rides shotgun. Cisco's Amy Lewis joins as our special guest this week... and jumps right into a chat about why "listless" Greg unfollowed her on Twitter. The gang also talk about what constitutes a "meaningful" code contribution, the Boston marathon bombings on social media and how Michael Dell was right all along...

This week we cover:

  • Greg and Amy continue their social media unfeud
  • Ed visits the OpenStack Summit
  • OpenStack and meaningful code contributions
  • How the concept of "open" has changed in 12 months
  • London StorageBeers recap
  • Cloud Schnitzel
  • Dell still going private
  • Next week, the big Chad Sakac podcast
  • Boston bombings and social media
  • Learning to be cynical on social media
