Once again it's time for the weekly Speaking in Tech podcast, hosted by Greg Knieriemen, Ed Saipetch and Sarah Vela - although this week Sarah is hiding.

So it's just Ed and Greg with special guest Ben Kepes - the well-known tech evangelist, investor, commentator and business adviser - to talk about the week's news and views about IT's who's who.

This week we discuss...

  • Greg and Ed's banter about McDonalds fan-mail, Cisco Live and foot-fitted web-cams.
  • Greg as an opening act to ubiquitous rock-star physicist Prof Brian Cox - who everyone had turned to see and hear, rather than Greg.
  • PRISM and the NSA spying programme.
  • New Zealand gets into spying.
  • Hong Kong as a refuge for whistleblowers.
  • Standards for the software defined data centre?
  • Savvis acquires AppFog.
  • The platform-as-a-Service market.
  • Pivotal, CloudFoundry and fruity bits.
  • Sticky PaaS.
  • The changing role of the CTO and CIO.
