Get Your Head (and your Computer) Out of The Cloud

Much ado about Cloud computing which I loathe...

The URL Link has been changing, so in case you can't get there from here via the link above, here's a snippet:

"Companies can employ a variety of strategies to enjoy the benefits of cloud-based infrastructure, while also maximizing data security. By deploying a private cloud environment, companies will rely exclusively on in-house security solutions. This would include their staff’s knowledge of security tools and the reliability of their existing IT infrastructure to defend against data theft. Deploying a public cloud environment usually means employing a hosted cloud-based service and infrastructure provider. In this case, a company would rely on the security capabilities, knowledge and insight that the provider brings to the table."

Sorry, I see no safety, no security , NOTHING for me in the whole "cloud" concept. Sheeple, yes, they'll love it. Me, nah! I've just ordered a new laptop, one of the last to feature both wifi and dialup capabilities as well as the Windows Xp OS, which I have come to embrace as Microsoft's best.

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
