Clouds

How Safe Is "The Cloud"?: The situation is more complex than cloud promoters would have you believe.

Friends, this is why "Cloud Computing" is wrong wrong wrong and a one-way ticket to losing the digital freedom you think you have now!

"What happens if the cloud provider is hacked? What if their data – which is actually your data – gets leaked by a rogue employee? What if they give up your data in light of a government subpoena?
It comes down to this: don’t put data on a cloud if you wouldn’t be comfortable with that data being exposed at some time in the future." ~ makeuseof blog

They claim the future of information technology is in cloud-based applications. When governments can seize the entire cloud
based on the actions a few or even many participants, it violates the property rights of its legitimate users. Ask Snowden or Assange.

With the concept curse of "cloud computing" everything is stored somewhere on some server in cyberland. This is a blessing and a curse. If you can't get online, or if the internet were to be hacked out of existence for a couple of weeks, you would have ZERO access to anything!

I prefer to have as much as possible STORED on my computer! That goes for emails, blogs, photos, videos, etc. Sure, I'll have them stowed away "up there" - but it is always best to keep files saved you can work on stuff if you cannot get online!

Top 10 cloud computing risks and concerns 




Let's be clear: CLOUD COMPUTING SUCKS!

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
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.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
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.
