Hyping the Cloud Fantastic
If Buzz-words are the coin of the realm in the IT industry then licenses to print money with clouds on it are being handed out to tech writers with their morning crumpets.
I would like to juxtapose two different links:
Cloud computing is for the birds - an article about how SaaS is too expensive for small businesses to use. Essentially a Cloud-debunker.
The Stages of Change - an article written about the history of teaching the New Math in schools
Really - just the bullet points on the first page make the point.
It all really just comes down to where we are on the Hype-Cycle graph now doesn't it?
