"Ahmed Kamal: Hi Greg, obviously I'm very interested in cloud based technologies and scalable apps. I know you have done some great work building a distributed media encoder cloud application based on Ubuntu server running over the Amazon EC2 cloud. Would you please give us some background on yourself and media-nommer?

"Greg Taylor: I am a semi-recent of graduate of Clemson University, now working for DUO Interactive, LLC in Greenville, South Carolina. Python has been my weapon of choice for the last five years or so, and Linux and I have been going steady for a bit over a decade now. My employer shares my love for open source software, and has put me in the position to be able to maintain the vast majority of our development stack in the open. media-nommer is just one of a growing number of projects that we maintain openly."
