Have you heard of the cloud? I’m seriously asking because I got some weird looks the other day at church when I mentioned it. I’m in the telecom world 50 hours +, a week so I guess that’s one of the benefits – hearing these new-fangled terms before others? Not really new fangled at all though. Internet companies have been calling the extensive conglomeration of computers, routers, switches, cables, fibers and access points “the cloud” for years.
The NYT article below points to recent events in Egypt and asks some serious and well rounded questions about the trend in the industry to move customers, products and services all to the cloud. Enjoy.
