Firestarter: What the hell is a cloud anyway?

By Rich

In our wanderings we’ve noticed that when we pull our heads out of the bubble, not everyone necessarily understands what cloud is or where it’s going. Heck, many smart IT people are still framing it within the context of what they currently do. It’s only natural, especially when they get crappy advice from clueless consultants, but it certainly can lead you down some ugly paths. This week Mike, Adrian and Rich are also joined by Dave Lewis (who accidentally sat down next to Rich at a conference) to talk about how people see cloud, the gaps, and how to navigate the waters.

cloud = “innovation” and not cloud = “crap”.  People who support the latter are “server huggers” and averse to change. Got it.
