Sun alum Miha Ahronovitz blogs that 2011 could be the Year of the Cloud:
We are , using Gartner Hype Cycle, in the the Trough of Disillusion and we need to reach the Plateau of Productivity . You can follow the answers on Quora to the question Has Cloud Computing reached its peak in terms of hype? According to J. Herman – artist, writer, producer – “Cloud computing is still PO, meaning Pre -Oprah. The moment Oprah declares cloud computing cool… then the hype will peak.”
I always enjoy Miha’s perspective, and I think he does a great job in this post of looking at the Cloud with a wide-angle lens. From my perspective, Hype is what killed the Grid, so I’d rather see this revolution stay quiet. Maybe we can distract Oprah with that by sending her to see Tron: Legacy.
