Clarification on the Open Cloud Manifesto

This effort would never have come together without wider industry support

I want make a quick point of clarification on the Open Cloud Manifesto and my involvement. I am not the "leader" or "instigator" of the manifesto. I am among a broader group of supporters & co-authors of this document, all of which have had equal involvement. Some of the recent media reports have mis-characterized me as being the sole creator or originator which is not correct. This effort would never have come together without the wider industry support and backing of the dozens of companies involved.

This manifesto must not be about anyone company or individual but instead the opportunity we share collectively to enable an open interoperable cloud ecosystem.

I am but one eager supporter like everyone else.
