The Cloud

pros

access data from "anywhere"

other devices

share data

data backed up

cons

data stored on another server

service can go away anytime

magnolia

"private" data held by others

not that I am hiding anything, not necessary for others to have access to it

afraid that it may be stolen, "data" held at home can be stolen too

I am currently using mobile me for contacts and calendar

data

mail

hosted on dreamhost

not on "private" server

contacts

synced through mobile me, iphone

pictures

some of them on flickr, not all cause I am lazy, trying to find something better, photoshop.com, not a big fan of type of fees, like lightroom, online, not supported outside of US yet, smugmug

documents

docs, google docs, blog entries, shared project docs

spreadsheet, google docs, shared project docs, expenses for trips, don't care if people see them

tasks

using remember the milk

calendar

synced through mobile me, iphone

financials

my bank is in the cloud

Google

A lot of data all in one place

using disconnected services, "harder" to gather data

google analytics already tracks my travels through the net

search tracks my searches either via ip or login

google becoming the "net"

AOL?

am I already in the cloud?

this mind map is in the cloud too

what am I afraid of?

others accessing my data

data being used against me

not that I have something to hide, sometimes I do, want to control who knows what

no need to be transparent to all

loosing access to my data

not sure how that would happen unless the service goes away, dreamhost can go away anytime

what got me thinking?

my trip to SA

not taking my laptop, taking netbook

thinking about being machine agnostic

need network access all the time
