Rackspace On Startups: Lew Moorman

What really drives tech entrepreneurs? What makes them tick? What drew the great disruptors to technology? Rackspace On Startups is a video series that explores insights from tech evangelists and founders – from Woz to Graham Weston.

We’re now in the Open Age, where the entire startup world is being built on open technologies and on the cloud. As President of Rackspace, Lew Moorman has witnessed this progression first-hand – from the birth of the internet in Silicon Valley while attaining his J.D from Stanford in the 90s to being on the forefront of cloud computing at Rackspace and the development of OpenStack.

According to Moorman, the world is constantly getting better, and that’s driven by technological innovation. Technology educates, creates breakthroughs in science and helps us understand each other better. And startups are fueling the next wave of technology. As Moorman said, startups “are thinking about the next next thing.”

In this video, we get insight into Moorman’s thoughts on startups and why they’re so important to Rackspace.
