"State of Cloud Computing," is an encompassing look at the history of cloud computing and the growing cloud economy.
The State of Cloud Computing video highlights the multitude of possibilities that cloud computing offers, from sharing videos and photos from anywhere in the world to storing and organizing data for remote access. Skype, Dropbox, YouTube, Wikipedia, Yahoo, MSN, Gmail, Farmville and Twitter are all referenced, and the video provides a snapshot of statistics.
The fact is, unless you have been living under a rock, you are in the cloud. Cloud computing touches us in numerous ways in our daily lives. As cloud computing continues to evolve, so does our ability to express ourselves and accomplish amazing things on the World Wide Web.
The conversation about cloud computing is happening around us. The three-minute video is hosted on a microsite http://www.thestateofcloudcomputing.com that aggregates the conversation about cloud computing across the web, including Top Cloud Computing Links, Top Cloud Computing Terms and Cloud Computing Around The Web, which pulls Tweets in real-time that are related to the cloud.
Sponsored by salesforce.com, an enterprise cloud computing company, and produced in collaboration with JESS3, a creative interactive agency, the video is part of a broader family of videos, The "State of" series, which launched earlier in 2010.
