Recently, I attended a conference session where the presenter said of his mature project, "We are focused mostly on performance these days, not much on new stuff."  To most people, I'm sure this statement was unremarkable.  However, as one who is associated with a project which is over a decade old and powers many of the largest clouds in the world, I found the statement both sobering and horrifying.

It is sobering to think that lack of  innovation within a project speaks of the impending end of the effort; a race has been run, a finish line crossed, and a horse put out to pasture.  It's the inevitable death of all things when there is no more room for real ingenuity or growth.  All that remains is to wait for the inevitable replacement to stand up and become the new go-to solution in the area.

But it is also horrifying to think that a project would choose to so casually embrace this fate.  I understand that once you set out to do something and you succeed, it is easy to say, "Well, I guess we're done with the new and interesting stuff."  But if you come to that conclusion too quickly, you probably suffer from a gigantic vision problem.

Couldn't make it to this year's Xen Project User Summit in New York City?  No problem!  Most of the videos are now available for viewing at XenProject.org.  These aren't highlight reels or a handful of talks from a few selected people; these are the meat-and-potatos talks from our event.  Most sessions are available right now; the final few should be posted in the next few days.

Take a look at some of the great talks already available...
