Here's how bad it's become: Yesterday, two "secure" email service providers decided they'd rather close up shop than cooperate with the United Spooks of America.

Very good start for this article… Not having read the rest yet, just starting.

Good leaders being scarce, following yourself is allowed.

I never liked it, either. Even the name sounds hokey. "Your data is in 'the cloud'." Will it get wet?

It's the ages old client-server model. Sun Microsystems created java in the hopes that all our data would "live" on their servers and we wouldn't "need" a huge cumbersome computer in our homes. (Wishful thinking with very little foresight and a blatant disregard of Moore's law.)

There's a video somewhere of Scott McNealey demonstarting to an audience the "enormous" size PCs would have to become in order to hold all of a user's data. I think he was over influenced by the original mainframe (server) and dumb terminal (client) model that preceeded the birth of home computers.

No, the could is electricity and hates water. It's probably the main difference between water cloud and data cloud. Data runs through pipes, it is collected by private companies, it is used for various things and is eventually recycled. Moreover, a few are making big money with it.

When any government, or any church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, "This you may not read, this you must not see, this you are forbidden to know," the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motives.
