In 1999, he moved to Silicon Valley and co-founded ThinkFree with the mission of delivering desktop software as a free Internet service. In a 2001 magazine interview, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer mentioned ThinkFree as a potential threat to his company, second only to Linux. In 2006, PC World awarded ThinkFree the World Class award. The following year, ComputerWorld selected ThinkFree as the best online office over Google Docs and Time magazine named it one of the 50 best websites of the year.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations.
