I’ve just returned home from London where I caught up with Scott Bicheno and Iain Morris from the Telecoms.com podcast. I joined them in their studio for an awesome conversation about the public cloud and telco.
Anyone who’s heard the Telecoms.com podcast knows that Scott and Iain are cloud skeptics, and I’m pretty sure you know where I stand on the subject. So we sat down over a few beers to talk it all out. This episode brings that conversation to you (all 1 hour and 20 minutes of it, they have a super long podcast!) So sit back and enjoy the very lively, sometimes hilarious, conversation.
