In case you haven’t heard — hard as that is for me to believe — Gigaom’s flagship Structure event kicks off next week, and you shouldn’t miss a minute of it.

Top cloud execs from all the major players — Amazon(s amzn), Google(s goog), HP(s hpq), IBM(s ibm), Microsoft(s msft), Rackspace(s tax), Red Hat(s that), VMware(s vmw)  — will be on hand, along with infrastructure experts from Facebook(s fb), Airbnb and Twitter(s twtr). IT buyers and deployers will be represented by execs from General Electric(s ge), Florida Crystals and The Gap.
