But is this Web 3.0 you talk about cloud compliant?
Cloud replaces Web 3.0
What replaces Cloud?
MOTHER OF GOD !
Give it a little bit, and cloud 2.0 will be replaced by Mainframe, mainframe replaced with distributed, then *aaS (IaaS, SasS, etc.), then it'll be Cloud 4.0
I saw this on Catalyst last night.
It'll be represented as "Cloud↑ ↑ ↑ Cloud."
where can we all throw our money at this Cloud↑ ↑ ↑ Cloud? I must have it on my iPad 6!
What's that? It doesn't work with existing infrastructure or the millions we have spent on developing our internal systems? I don't care give me Cloud↑ ↑ ↑ Cloud now!
While we're at it, what's so hard about plumbing? It's just joining pipes together. Or building houses - we've been doing that for centuries, how hard can it be? Or electricians? I have a $10 wire stripper and everything comes with a diagram - it's all just wire A into slot B.
We should just outsource everything to India!
Cloud plumbing! my god we could make millions!
The internet is just lots of tubes, so a plumber is IT.
Or are IT people plumbers?
The amount of sh*t I have to deal with? I'm definitely a plumber
"What the hell happened to professional IT?"
We all got really fucking cynical, that's what.
"The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who have not got it."
- George Bernard Shaw
And data centre will be renamed cloud stations
I should call my data centre company that. Cloud station
If I had two engineering degrees I'd probably know if you were taking the piss out of me
Not taking the piss. Just positing a different position on where our cynicism comes from.
That quote is one of my favourites, probably because I get called cynical a hell of a lot. With that said, a lot of my "cynical" predictions tend to come true.
my father 'Percival' has two Engineering degrees as well as a Bach of Ed.
I got sick of remoting into his computer to fix up his problems.
In the end I rang Microsoft and paid out for their local Aussie provider to look after him. Go figure - I now work for said 'provider'..
My father is a gifted man - but not good with computers.
I knew this when he turned down my offer to install Ubuntu on his home desktop.
Thats unlucky, my dad added me sudoers on his US based VPS's and said don't break anything.
