peasandcarrots: You can't really recover from that kind of eggs-in-a-basket thing. Fifty years from now there will be corporate CEOs in the entertainment and media business who will mistrust cloud computing because of "how they got burned back in 2013 when I was an intern."When it rains, it pours, I guess...
davynelson: me, I laugh at the Man's notion that cash should disappear and all money go electronic to avoid crime.when the power goes out, where does all your money go?buh bye, that's where./same with e-libraries
balki1867: There needs to be some sort of debate set up between this guy and Senator Ted Stevens.(For the uninitiated, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6aFmib9NUoY )
Iplaybass: WTF is with the head bobbing from interviewer?
tom baker's scarf: Headline: Indian Man Yells at Cloud
fluffy2097: What happens to all your data on a cloud service should they go out of business, or are seized by the FBI or MPAA/RIAA?
indarwinsshadow: Indian?I thought that had been replaced by South Asian, and "Indian" was an old term that was now replaced by "First Nations".At least here in Canada it has.
peasandcarrots: For a while, my company had a big boner for the Cloud, which isn't such a surprise for a media company - the idea of offsite storage and distribution (and canning the IT know-it-alls) sounded just delicious to them, so they spent millions on contracts with a system that was big in the industry for Cloud-computing.
Ishkur: The whole point behind the cloud is that your data is everywhere, accessible from anything, like the domain name lists that sites trade daily. Like a viral image, you can't get rid of something in the cloud. If a server goes down, there are backups upon backups on other servers, and they're all interchangeable. And all of that data still safe, secure, and privvy only to you. That is the true vision of the cloud.
Eddie Adams from Torrance: peasandcarrots: You can't really recover from that kind of eggs-in-a-basket thing. Fifty years from now there will be corporate CEOs in the entertainment and media business who will mistrust cloud computing because of "how they got burned back in 2013 when I was an intern."When it rains, it pours, I guess...IT technologies are just a pendulum.The first systems were "Cloud" computing. You had a big set of centralized servers and storage and everyone accessed them remotely through relatively dumb devices.This we deemed "bad", so we all moved to smart endpoints with local storage and computing.This we deemed "bad" so we all moved to dumber endpoints with remote storage computing.Lather, rinse, repeat.If "Cloud" crashes and burns, it'll be back under a new name.
peasandcarrots: To be fair, even I don't know what "cloud" computing is, exactly.
