What bothers me about cloud computing is that if my internet connection is down, I cannot do any work nor access 'my' data.

What you increasingly see is 'services' (like Facebook) that stipulate, once you have intrusted YOUR stuff to THEM, it becomes THEIR stuff. Yes, I am on Facebook, but I do little on it, because I gossip less than they do on what is laughingly called 'News'.

This discussion of cloud computing is bringing up issues of information access that is increasingly controlled by large financial - government interests. Already, 'news' has become nothing more than either entertainment. or controlled stories. I don't know where this is going to end up but it doesn't seem anywhere good.
