Not a cloud in the sky

Sunday I tried playing music through my Apple TV locally connected to my MacBook Pro that acts as the iTunes server with my music on it. It could not connect to the iTunes store, which it apparently had to. Alas, no music today.

Today the weather got nippy, and I logged into my mobile nest (thermostat) application on the iPhone to adjust the temperature. To no avail. The nest server cannot be found.

So, think twice before you argue with me on the notion that the best cloud is still your own. Think three times before you trust your services to the cloud.

Today apparently, the “gods” decided there be no cloud in the sky.


About Georges van Hoegaerden

As a Silicon Valley entrepreneur having raised $14M in venture capital and having returned over $100M to investors I noticed a systemic flaw in the way we build systems. And so I gradually evolved my focus from the economics of innovation to the innovation of economics. I completely re-wrote the playbook of economics to serve us all and named it Renewable Economics™.
