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

After my ideas had raised $14M and returned over $100M to investors in Silicon Valley I could not help but detect a systemic flaw in the way we detect, build, fund and support systems of innovation. On an entrepreneurial quest to root-cause I evolved my focus from the economics of innovation to the innovation of economics, and ended up completely rewriting the playbook of economics that must guide us all. I named my invention Renewable Economics™.
