In the clouds.

While emailing this morning with my friends at Integrated Marketing Partners in San Francisco I made a silly typo: I referred to cloud computing as cloud commuting. Then I began to think that this isn’t so silly after all.  While images of the Jetsons come to mind, what I’m thinking about is how we do in fact use “the cloud” as a commuting channel.

This image comes from Wikipedia and illustrates my point.  Given the cloud’s agility and location independence, we  do commute from one device to another as seamlessly as walking from one room to another. We can be anywhere, anytime, and access all our stored data.  Commuting has never been easier or more productive.

As cloud computing progresses, our ability to adapt to the rapid pace of change in the world today becomes more efficient–if not easier.  This is evolution at the light speed.

Are you ready?

  1. This is an interesting idea. I think you need to define exactly what you mean by cloud commuting, but if it is anything as I am imagining it, you are spot on. I feel like the number one goal of every innovator, albeit software, hardware, social or whatever, is to ease the sharing of information. This may be cliche, but it is true. Google is trying this on two levels; A social approach using Google+ as a one stop hub to compile and share all of their services, and a mobile approach seen in the implementation of Android Beam into the Nexus Prime. Apples new iMessage and iCloud will achieve very similar outcomes in IOS5. It extends far past these two tech giants too, as every start up is looking for ways to implement already existing services in order to gain main stream support, and also for simple ease of use. I recently switched to a new contacts manager on my phone called Smartr due to its ability to combine my google contacts, facebook friends, twitter followers and LinkIn connections. I now have like 5,000 contacts at the tip of my fingers. Its awesome. The next 3 years will be very exciting. I am happy to be here during this evolution.
