“I’m going to sleep now”

Sunday, August 8th, 2010

It seems like everyone is blogging or writing articles about social networking or cloud computing. I think I’ll try to avoid that unless absolutely necessary.

I’m not belittling those technologies.  Social networking sites attract hordes of participants.  And cloud computing, yet another reshuffling of computer capabilities to reduce costs and increase efficiencies, has many interesting ramifications including cost of computation and loss of privacy.

I’ll make a wish for fewer “it’s the next big thing” or “it’s here now” columns, and wish instead for more substance.

On the bright side: when a trend starts to annoy me, that may be an indication it is nearly over.
