One year ago Ignacio Llorente and me started asking around and organizing a BoF session for OGF25 in Catania, Italy. We finally started working on one of the first Cloud Standards in March. All this was driven by the project RESERVOIR, Now it has become definitely a little bit bigger 🙂

Striking Lufthansa Pilots??

Okay the Lufthansa pilots are going on strike starting tomorrow for 4 days. I’m flying Lufthansa…But that is no issue. I fly with Augsburg Airways which is part of the Lufthansa organization. Weird is that Lufthansa uses the Augsburg Airways brand to pay pilots less then they have to when they would work for Lufthansa.

Those pilots working for Augsburg Airways whom earn less are not going to strike…something is wrong here…
