Get Your Head Out Of The Cloud

Has it occurred to anyone that ‘The Cloud’ is really just an aggregation of server farms, all connected by cables and powered by electricity? Cut a few of those cables, or overheat the servers, and ‘The Cloud’ dissipates faster than the value of Facebook stock.

What does ‘The Cloud’ signify? We’ve decided not to store stuff on our own machines. Instead, we pay others to store stuff on their machines. This is the reality behind the alleged Technological-Epistemological Revolution Of Our Times.

Try not to give in to despair.
