the effects of cloud computing on my sanity


having your “head in the clouds” is not such a bad thing; a lot can be accomplished when you do put it up there (or down or around or however you get to your own cloud. do remember to stay out of other people’s clouds, it’s only polite), but then they come along and make cloud computing a thing and it really takes the wind out of your sails cloud and suddenly there’s all this extraneous stuff just floating around out there…little 1s & 0s all a-jumble and who, in their right mind (or wrong mind, for that matter) can make any sense of it any longer, conceptually or otherwise, i ask you? [otherwise known as things i said to take up digital space and call it my own. –ed.]

    Well, I’m trying to embrace putting my data and images on the cloud but always have the fear of not having physical back up. I’m beginning to think that is a metaphor for a lot of things in life.

      several years ago, i decided that i was not meant to understand everything about the digital age. all that i’ve asked of myself is to have some fluency when it comes to these tools and as it turns out, i have done that.
