Internet & Networking I attended VM World last week, and as you might imagine, it was "cloud computing" this and "cloud computing" that the whole time. The hype factor for the cloud is in overdrive right now. But is it warranted? A lot of people, even tech-oriented ones, outside of the data center sysadmin types, wonder what all the hype is about. I've come to believe that cloud computing is major computing revolution, but for most computing users, it's an invisible one.

Much like real clouds, the white puffy kind is inherently much like cloud computing. The sad thing is there are always a group of marginally employed tech assholes that will buy into the latest fad in IT and repeat it over and over again and eventually the community moves on to the next idiot stage of its existence... "The next big thing."
