Cloud Cafe #27 – What is a Cloud?

By John | November 24, 2008

I guess it might seem silly to ask this question after 26 podcasts on said subject.  However, when you get a chance to ask this question to two smart guys like Geva Perry (Thinking out Cloud) and James Urquhart (Wisdom of Clouds) the the question doesn’t seem that silly.  We walk through a lot of the cloud definitions being used today and try to put “some” sanity to all the cloud defintions being used in the cloud-o-sphere.

I think you will enjoy this podcast.

I wanted to add a special thanks to Florence Neal for the artwork and Mike Colletti for the music. They both will be creating a series of “cloud” art and music for this podcast series. If you find any of their works interesting, feel free to link their sites and contact them directly.

    I am a big fan of Cloud Computing and admit there’s so much I still need to learn in this about this topic. It’s all a bit “cloudy” :) for most and your sessions help to bring clarity to the topic. I really enjoyed this particular podcast! Very, very informative, as are the rest of your podcasts.

    Great pod cast. Even after being in this business for 15 years and following the cloud movement I am confused. I think I am going to start a company and get this guy as my spokes man… does Sham-Cloud have a nice ring?
