The two minute intro video with Tim O’Reilly, Al Gore and Bill Joy raised expectations of a great presentation… then it turned into a cheesy infomercial.
This was an advertisement. If it had been a technical demo instead, it might have really been interesting. Instead, it led to me hearing from literally dozens of people about how disappointing it was and how it was just a press event for a sponsor.
I found it uninteresting and overhyped. The subsequent details given explained nothing. It sounded like “some commodity server.” With no demo, I was left to assume it was what it sounded like.
This was a disgusting piece of hype. Totally out of place at OSCON.
Will a video of this keynote be made available?
The announcement would have been special if he’d explained what it was about, and if it was relevant for all the world.
”... enable global innovation.” And in the next sentence: ”... provide for middle America”.
I hope in future global means more than just the US.
