I first delved into the world of OpenStack about a year ago.  I had heard it thrown around in meetings, and started seeing a fair bit about it on twitter.  As I did more research I found out it began in 2010 as a research project between Rackspace and NASA.  Which of course, only intrigued me further, since I’m a huge space nerd.  I’ve also heard it come up in discussion more often than not in the last year or so.
