I guess most of this blog’s readers also read WorldCAD Access and upFront.eZine, so it probably hasn’t escaped your notice that in the latest upFront.eZine, Ralph had procalimed “The Cloud is Dead” and referred to some of my recent posts here as supporting evidence. I’d just like to point out that it’s Ralph announcing the death of the Cloud, and not me. Personally, while I agree with some of Ralph’s points, I think there’s life in the Cloud yet and the obituary is somewhat premature.
My own attitude toward the cloud matches that of most of you, judging by the poll results here. I see pros and cons, and have strong concerns about many of the cons. However, I intend to cover both sides objectively. Look out for more coverage soon.
I’ll report your comment in next week’s upFront.eZine. I reproduced some of your headlines in my newsletter, because I wanted to credit you for getting me thinking about the problems.
Thanks. I don’t have a problem with what you wrote or your use of my headlines, I just wanted to clarify that it was your position rather than mine.
