In a too rare spate of social commentary, we start talking about the price of hipster avocados in Australia and US health insurance. With one of our favorite analysts moving over the enterprise side, we talk about what it'd be like going through that door. We then wrap up talking about Canonical's IPO talk, related OpenStack market discussion, and then use CyberArk's acquisition of Conjur to discuss the state of privileges access management (PAM). We end, as always, with recommendations, including some CostCo discussion.

We discuss the continual rise of Kubernetes, with Amazon as seemingly the main hold-out. This leads to a not-too-painful discussion of the stat of open source, at least how companies are using it tactically. Then we close out discussing the rumor that Oracle is considering buying Accenture and how the enterprise software plus services model seems to be panning out.

With all those domestic, direct flights, the gang lays out the case for Southwest. Coté salivates at the prospect but is worried about sitting next to chicken cages, but there's plenty of $500 shoe sales people on board. We also discuss Oracle buying Dyn, AWS's power, the looming cloud success of Microsoft, and, of course, containers.
