  1. The cloud is a con, the corporations and governments want to separate us from our programs and files, so all they have to do is cut off our internet access and we’re totally fucked, so we can’t even write anything or make any videos. It’s optional right now, but once they have enough mugs signed up they’ll make it compulsory. It’s all about controlling the means of production by removing it from our hands. Don’t say you weren’t warned.

  2. he is a very insightful guy, combined with a good portion of common sense and humour;-) We do online banking since 10+x years now, we do Amazon shopping since years…so “cloud” is already a reality…simple hosting of services and software somewhere on a server…that simple…and nothing new…

  4. Please, Larry Ellison and Oracle have been offering Software As a Service, means, “cloud computing” for today marketing strategy. So it is nothing new at all. I remember working in a company in late 90s and we used Oracle software and that software were in the Oracle data center. The industry just change the term and they are selling like if they have invented technology. This is another proof that USA is not innovating anymore. Simple like that.

When he says about “Sand Hill Road”, is because it is where there are a lot of “Venture Capital Firms” and they came out with the marketing term “CLOUD COMPUTING”. Simple like that.
