  • Transcript

    • 1. What We Need are Standards in the Cloud
    • 2. If a standard falls in the forest and there is nobody there to adopt it, is it still a standard?
    • 3. My name is Benjamin Black
    • 4. And I have no standards.
    • 5. Let’s talk about something interesting, instead:
    • 6. Technology adoption.
    • 7. Customer-centric view
    • 8. Why adopt a technology?
    • 9. Utility:
    • 10. Does this solve my problem?
    • 11. Interoperability:
    • 12. Can I combine vendors+products to solve my problem?
    • 13. Independence:
    • 14. Can I be totally free of vendor lock-in?
    • 15. Utility
    • 16. Interoperability Utility
    • 17. Independence Interoperability Utility
    • 18. These are not equal.
    • 19. A hierarchy of needs.
    • 20. Utility
    • 21. Interoperability Utility
    • 22. Independence Interoperability Utility
    • 23. Some problems need not go past UTILITY.
    • 24. e.g., SQL (in reality)
    • 25. Some problems can’t achieve UTILITY without INTEROP.
    • 26. e.g., TCP/IP
    • 27. The cycle:
    • 28. 1] Disruption.
    • 29. MASSIVE UTILITY
    • 30. (and a lot of imperfection)
    • 31. Rapid adoption (by definition)
    • 32. 2] Competition.
    • 33. EXPLORATION
    • 34. Endless variety
    • 35. Goal: Discovery
    • 36. Not just of solutions.
    • 37. But of the complete problem.
    • 38. Many ‘standards’
    • 39. (meaning no standard)
    • 40. The seeds of interop are sown.
    • 41. We are currently in this stage.
    • 42. 3] Maturation.
    • 43. FORMALIZATION
    • 44. Our itch having been scratched, we turn to less pressing matters.
    • 45. Independence
    • 46. Successful standards formalize what is already true.
    • 47. Standards are side-effects
    • 48. of successful technology.
    • 49. There are no successful standards absent successful implementations.
    • 50. All successful standards are de facto standards.
    • 51. TANSTAAFL
    • 52. Ra t e o f I n n o v a t i o n De g r e e o f S t a n d a r d i z a t i o n
    • 53. Utility Ra t e o f I n n o v a t i o n De g r e e o f S t a n d a r d i z a t i o n
    • 54. Utility Ra t e o f I n n o v a t i o n Interoperability De g r e e o f S t a n d a r d i z a t i o n
    • 55. Utility Ra t e o f I n n o v a t i o n Interoperability Independence De g r e e o f S t a n d a r d i z a t i o n
    • 56. (the innovation moves elsewhere)
    • 57. Standardize too soon, and you lock to the wrong thing.
    • 58. Unclear that it is even possible to standardize ‘too late’.
    • 59. We have missed an important question:
    • 60. What do we even mean by ‘standard’?
    • 61. Standard
    • 62. Standard Standard specification
    • 63. Standard Standard specification Standard committee
    • 64. Standard:
    • 65. What everybody uses.
    • 66. Utility + Disruption Standard
    • 67. Standard specification:
    • 68. What someone hopes you’ll use.
    • 69. Interoperability Standard specification
    • 70. Standard committees:
    • 71. The legislative branch.
    • 72. Independence Standard committee
    • 73. Concerned with:
    • 74. Licensing Patent grants Open process Interoperable implementations Open source etc.
    • 75. Special bonuses:
    • 76. Politiks Permanent seats Preferential votes Secret handshakes etc.
    • 77. If you don’t achieve UTILITY...
    • 78. Customers won’t bother.
    • 79. They want their problems solved.
    • 80. Standard committees don’t build.
    • 81. We can only discover the right standards by building and exploring.
    • 82. To discover the right standards, we must eschew standards.
    • 83. Go do.
