Thinkcloud (1901664) writes "Clouds are fluffy, light, and normally hang peacefully above us in the sky. From time to time they might get dark and drop rain or snow on us, but no one expects a cloud to fall out of the sky with the weight of ten tons of steel, copper, and concrete. I am more and more convinced that the chosen metaphor of a “cloud” to describe complex network and computer infrastructure is simply wrong."
