when clouds evaporate your data

The surge to the cloud feels like a certainty (as much as anything can be a certainty in technology).  It reminds me of the momentum shifts felt when things were moving to client/server computing, and more recently around virtualization.  I think the media is largely in a frenzy precisely *because* it’s the newest thing we’ve had to talk about of “mass” interest since virtualization.  That frenzy feeds on itself (as evidenced even  by my own posts on the topic).

As such, as with any technology transition, it’s not going to be all rainbows and lollipops.  Here’s an interesting post on what, I’m sure, will be many painful side effects as we move into the world of cloud computing.  Also got some enlightenment from our IT leader at Quest regarding a conference she attended, which I’ll post in a later entry.
