RSAC 2010: Defining the Cloud, Film at 11

Again, I had an excellent, educational experience at the RSA Conference. I run into editors, bloggers and analysts I know from time to time at the show and always ask them the same question, anything new, exciting or cutting-edge?

At around 11 Tuesday night, I ran into Richard Stiennon crossing Howard Street, he was with an MSP friend of his and during our brief conversation he mentioned a few of the more “interesting” vendors he had come across. I look forward to reading his complete thoughts on them when he publishes.
