Dasein Cloud at OSCON

While working on Dell’s acquisition of Enstratius, one of the highlights for me was the work George Reese and team have done on the open source (Apache license) cloud abstraction layer – Dasein Cloud.  I’m pleased Enstratius joined Dell, and that the work on building Dasein, and making Dasein available for other uses, has only accelerated.

Please see George’s blog post on his views of Dasein’s progress in just the last few months, and if you’re at OSCON, stop by the Dell booth or the Dasein session and talk to George.

F/OSS for querying publicdata.com?

Has anyone written free/open source software to use the publicdata.com query API? I’ve got several dozen coaches we need to do background checks on, and we use publicdata.com. Turns out our folks have been doing this manually for years. Seems like something that could be easily automated, but haven’t found any software, open or otherwise, to do so.
