"I was just reading a Facebook comment from a friend about a hospital basically shutting down... presumably they had a dependency on something "in the cloud".
Now, I'll certainly grant that said hospital fucked up beyond belief by having that dependency, and I'd hope that heads will roll over it, but the impact seems to go beyond mere entertainment."
Wont' happen. Executives *love* "the cloud" because, among other things, it can very effectively deflect blame. It was not me, it's been DynDNS, a reputable actor in the industry, who would have expected it! (by "who" being other executives, of course, not somebody with actual technical acumen). So the most that will happen is that they'll go from this sole provider for that service to another one with even higher "corporate image".
