Announcements from LinuxCon: IO Visor Project Kinetic Open Storage Project Open Mainframe Project Open Container Initiative Topic 1 - First question we have to ask about is foundations. What is changing in the market or with communities that we’ve seen so many get created in the last 12-18 months?

Topic 2 - Some people have said that foundations are becoming the new standards committees, which had a reputation for slowing down innovation. Does technology move so fast these days that we need to introduce some “governors” to pace it a little better, or do you have a different opinion?

Topic 3 -  We’re seeing more “traditional” companies get engaged with open source software, typically via the foundations. What guidance do you give their leadership, especially if open source isn't part of their core business model today?

Topic 4 -  The Linux Foundation is involved in so many interesting technologies. Without picking a favorite child, what areas or trends are really grabbing your attention these days?
