Kevin, this article defines the cloud as 'The Internet', which includes
all of us who visit this site. We are all in the cloud.
What concerns me is the software that after viewing one's facial
picture; either digitally on the Web or analog in real life, in just
minutes can produce data as private as a person's interests; even social
security numbers can be produced.
I'm not sure how this technology will be controlled, but as a positive
futurist, I believe that one day it will be properly managed for human
benefit, while protecting us from dangers.
That's the hope, anyway.
