This is pretty cool. Although it was published in May, I just found out that Jimmy Atkinson listed me in his 25 Most Influential People in the Web Hosting Industry over at the Web Hosting Database (WHDb) site. The list is made of three categories founders/CEOs, CTOs/Engineering and Marketing people. I'm in the latter category.
If you're wondering what I have to do with "web hosting", the connection of course is cloud computing, which is converging hosting with infrastructure software and other aspects of the industry (but more on that in an upcomg post about Platform-as-a-Service).
In any case, thanks for including me, Jimmy. It's a very distinguished list.
