Keynote: Why Open Matters: HP and OpenStack - Brian Aker, Fellow, HP
HP’s public and private cloud products are built using OpenStack.  The OpenStack project has rapidly been adopted as the leading open source cloud solution because it avoids vendor lock-in,
and its inclusive development model has attracted enthusiastic contributors, and so is becoming ubiquitous across public, managed, and private clouds.  Ten years ago, HP bet big on open source by backing Linux when it was new and untrusted by enterprise users. Today, HP continues that policy by backing OpenStack.  We will present how we got here and where HP is investing in OpenStack’s future.

Keynote: The Technium - Kevin Kelly, Senior Maverick, Wired Magazine
What comes after the Internet? What is bigger than the web? What will produce more wealth than all the startups to date? The answer is a planetary super-organism comprised of 4 billion mobile phones, 80 quintillion transistor chips, a million miles of fiber optic cables, and 6 billion human minds all wired together. The whole thing acts like a single organism, with its own behavior and character -- but at a scale we have little experience with. This is more than just a metaphor. In this presentation, Kevin takes the idea of a global super-organism seriously by describing what we know about it so far, how it is growing, where its boundaries are, and what it will mean for us as individuals and collectively. Both the smallest one-person enterprises today, and the largest mega-corporations on Earth, will have to learn to how this Technium operates, and how to exploit it.
