    But is this Web 3.0 you talk about cloud compliant?

    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!

    The internet is just lots of tubes, so a plumber is IT.

    Or are IT people plumbers?

    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.
