The Cloud Crowd: Photos from Xconomy’s June 24 Cloud Computing Forum

Bob just finished a writeup of our June 24 forum, “The Promise and Reality of Cloud Computing,” which was held at Akamai Headquarters in Kendall Square and was a huge success, with over 150 people in attendance. But we also wanted to offer you a few photos from the event, which had a stellar lineup of speakers from some of the country’s leading providers and users of cloud computing services, including Akamai, EMC, EnterpriseDB, Google, IBM, Microsoft, Stylefeeder, and Sun.

Below are a few of the shots captured by our own Erik Mellgren, a visiting Innovation Journalism fellow from the Swedish technology paper Ny Teknik. You can click on the photos to see larger versions with captions. You can also click here for a longer slide show with all of Erik’s pictures from the event.
