I agree.  People will be scouting the same sysadmin resumes but will 
look for those that include cloud computing specialization/experience.  
I think this just gets chalked up with other specializations such as 
security, web, database, filesystem, and grid computing.

Segway that to another thread, maybe we can use these sysadmin schools 
as an organizational structure for the script repository.
