Journal pentalive's Journal: Clyde's Cloud Computing

I don't like cloud computing. It's 'My Data" on "Not My Machine"

Before Local Cloud:
I have a bunch of machines
and a nerd who herds them.
I am his boss,
I control him.
I own my data.
I have to pay to replace broken machines.

After Local Cloud Computing:
I have a bunch of machine
and a nerd to herd them
but he doesn't report to me-
I can't control him.
He owns my data
Part of the Fee is insurance to fix machines that Might break.
