I completely agree with this cloud computing thing.

In the future I actually think we will be doing things quite a bit more segregated.

Look at Slashdot and what happened to wikileaks. This type of behavior is not going down. I know from working in a fund we are completely concerned who owns the servers and where they are physically. And now way in h**l will those servers be located in certain jurisdictions... Too much risk.

It is not that we are doing anything illegal, more like we don't want problems from prying eyes... And these days governments like to pry for no apparent reason other than they want to...
