Understanding the Digital Cloud: Where it Came From and How
How do you picture the data cloud we hear somuch about? Perhaps in your mind's eye it is a universal, untouchablecollection of pixels and electricity pulsing somewhere far above our heads.Last night's Thinking Aloud featured a guest who is trying to change how wethink about the data cloud.
