Submission + - Irony: Google's CIO doesn't let employees use "consumer-grade" cloud services (citeworld.com)

mattydread23 writes: This takes the cake. In an interview with AllThingsD this weekend, Google CIO Ben Fried explained that he "can't let employees mess around with consumer-grade technology" and that he won't let employees use Dropbox because "when your users use it in a corporate context, your corporate data is being held in someone else’s data center." This from the CIO of the company that has done more to push consumer-grade cloud services into the enterprise than anybody else. Apparently it's "do as we say, not as we do."
