“"Cloud is Gmail, right?"”
I imagined that I was a CIO who was out hiking on some glacier in 2001, and I fell in and was frozen there, only to thaw out ten years later (thanks, global warming!). My company was so glad to see me that they immediately gave me my old job back, and then they shipped me off to Google Atmosphere 2011 to get up-to-speed on this whole “cloud” thing that I had missed out on.
What would I, the unfrozen caveman CIO, think about “the cloud” after a full day at Google’s conference?
The answer is easy: I’d think that “cloud” was synonymous with “Gmail.”
