William here. In the spirit of the holidays, I promised my kids I’d do nothing useful this week. To keep this post in the realm of non-work I decided to have an early coming out party. No, not in the tradition of Adam L or Justin T. More in the tradition of the release of something new and fun, and the thing I’d like to celebrate early is the e-era where all things “e” live and give us new options to old-school norms.
I’m talking about the cloud, that ethereal space where products and services live but can’t be touched. I’m talking about the age of e where e-ink, e-readers, and e-books are the norm and not the exception. I’m talking about virtual libraries and other virtualized things that don’t have physical counterparts.
This world of “e” is here and we are at its cusp. So I’d like to ask you, dear reader, what you think about this world of “e”? How are you using “e” technologies? Or what are you planning to do in the “e” space? For example, what are your plans for using Software as a Service, Platform as a Service, or Infrastructure as a Service? Do you have or plan to have a private cloud? Will you use the public cloud or implement a hybrid environment?
In short, tell me what this world of “e” mean to you (or what it will mean to you in the future)?
Your comments posted here and emails are welcome (and hoped for to keep me from doing real work)!
