Is your head in "the cloud"?

Integrated Learnings

So now here comes cloud computing and once again my risk flag goes up. Having my head in “the cloud” is not as risky as it appears. I use the cloud everyday. My news and information aggregator is in the cloud. My task management is in the cloud. My social connections are in the cloud. E-mail, calendar, office docs, miscellaneous file storage.all in the cloud. I’m even writing this document in the cloud! So what is the cloud?

Plus, what does being in the cloud actually mean? Hosting does offer very tight and safe security, and access is via the internet, even if you go through your VPN (Virtual Private Network). Argument for security internally due to data or otherwise is out-dated: Even before cloud computing, hosted LMS/LCMSs always had very tight security safeguards in place; in some cases stronger than some companies; I am unaware of one LMS/LCMS that has been hacked.
