Speaking in Tech: 'Pure Storage is defined by... Vaughn Stewart's hairdo'
Plus: 'LinkedIn's just a giant public Rolodex'
Hosted by Greg Knieriemen, Ed Saipetch and Sarah Vela. This week, Eddie is wining and dining while Sarah and Greg hold court with Mark Twomey of EMC, better known as StorageZilla.
Mark Twomey's dulcet Irish tones brighten your Wednesday as the team shoot the breeze about cloud services. Do they really "hold you hostage" once you're through the door, as Mark says? Greg is a big fan of private clouds - "they're almost a no-brainer" - while Sarah makes the obvious point about LinkedIn: "It's a giant public Rolodex. I don't care about the thought leadership bull&h*t they've got going on ... it's just there as a standing CV."
