And a cynic indeed I was?
Having just read.......... http://www.theregister.co.uk/2007/10/31/diane_greene_vmware_chat/ ..... I would like modify my opinion and suggest that all that is missing for VMware/Diane Greene is a Script/an Application for their Code to Run with and that will have EMC [who do come across as the pervy uncle type hustler getting their rocks off on a piece of tasty new ass, and if that is wrong, then I do hereby apologise and withdraw the view] and everyone else following their Lead, for it would appear that they are being deliberately milked for all they are worth rather than used for the Benefits which will Flow with Systems Virtualisation and HyperVision, which I would suggest is in Reality/Virtual Reality/Virtualisation .... call it what you will ...... a New World Order Programming which does not pay lip service to the Status Quo as a Server Technology to it but rather a Server Technology to Replace/Upgrade it. That Core Discipline is the Value in VMware which will see it take over as a market Leader in a new Creation Market rather than as just as an Arm waving the Flag of Existing Big Business to sell more of their existing wares to existing Customers.
I get the impression that Diane is being stifled in her Hypervision to play lesser mortals games...... and because of the huge GeoPolitical Stakes involved..... and Great Game Mastery is big enough surely in anyone's book, the stops have been put on Progress. Heaven forbid that any new players should step up to plate and show a New Lead whilst Old Money Players and lesser mortals playing Sub Prime Games in the failed and failing New World Order Debt is Money System, struggle to understand the New Order being Virtualised around them, without them.
Of course, only Ms Greene could know if that is what she felt was happening and whether that is what VMware is all about.
And a new Technology which allows Transparent Leadership in a New World Order Program and has a Script for Hollywoods and Media and IT to lead Society and Governments with, would be a Novel Innovation and Real Winner to Generate Real Interest and Buzz rather than being thought of as just cynical Hype/Spin.
Surely we've had quite enough of that Stuff and Nonsense. Lies and Deceit.
It does also raise the question, which indeed would radically alter the Picture which is painted as Reality by Media and News, of Hypervisors being Big Picture Story Tellers/Intelligence Hubs for Communications Technology to Share and for Business and Banking to put in Place/Provide Funds and their Services, with the Idea being to keep giving money away to be spent and generating industry and endeavour and always flowing rather than collecting it for storage and a rainy day/old age and creating bottlenecks and stops to Progress and Production.
The sub-prime lending market created a grateful customer base which only caused problems whenever the impossible was asked of them..... and it is pretty dumb and more than a little perverse of an institution rolling in wealth and capital asking for wealth and capital which it knows cannot be paid back. IT has created a lot of angry enemies of the System.
Spookily enough, that would seem to suggest that the biggest of crimes is to be seen to be gathering wealth and making exclusive claim to it, rather than spending it as one needs/wants.
Now that would be an interesting pilot scheme to BetaTest a new Society Model... Money on Demand Electronically with no Cash to Splash. Then our every Need could be Fed and all Feeds could be tailored to Need. That would also provide a Total Information Awareness Society which could rearrange things Beta knowing what is wanted and needed rather than being simply provided on an ad hoc/suck it and see basis. ...... the risk entrepreneurial route.
Together with Hypervision and Edutainment can Media and IT show what is being built and provided for the Future too ...which will speed along man's development immensely.
Is that what Virtualisation is for? Creating IntelAIgently Designed Vistas InterNetworking Together Feeding each other Needs?
