Amazon and HPE had separate slumber parties and it's officially $10k week
By Joe Rodgers • Issue #12 • View online
Ajit Pai is still planning on destroying the Internet as we know it. That’s the bad news. On the other hand, HPE Discover and AWS re:Invent 2017 happened this week so you know what that means…. lot’s of headlines on the enterprise side. While OEM conventions are cool, the coolest of all the cool news was watching Bitcoin surge past $10k.
Everyone I talked to was hyped about this, mainly because I was the one who brought it up and I was hyped. I decided to build a mining rig and will be documenting the journey over on Side Notes.
***Spoiler alert, not much to see at this point because of a bad motherboard.***

Here’s a good snippet from the article:
Is your goal to be the company that provides the infrastructure and leads this new industrial revolution?
Absolutely. We are already number one in IT infrastructure in the world. We see a huge build-out in infrastructure because of the intelligence that’s embedded in all of these objects. We think edge computing will be many, many times bigger than what you’d think of as a cloud – whether it’s a private cloud or public cloud or hybrid.

Here’s the quote in context, slightly less vom worthy:
What do you think about blockchain?
It’s really interesting and we spend a fair bit of time looking at blockchain. We’ve had a lot of partners and customers building blockchains on top of AWS and services for others to use on AWS. We are watching it carefully. We talk to customers, and they are very interested in the concept, but we don’t yet see a lot of practical use cases using blockchain. We don’t build technology because we think the technology is cool, we only build it if we think we can solve a specific customer problem, where building that service will solve the problem. So far, with the vast majority of use cases, there are other ways to solve those problem more easily.
