Without fear or favor, I present my obligatory Top 11 2011 Cloud Computing Predictions:

1. Bangladesh emerges as the new Information Society hotspot. Cloud Computing features in the government’s development strategy.

2. India and Taiwan start putting major major data centers online. They will work with major US service providers to deliver PaaS and IaaS.

3. Northern Africa also emerges as an IT and Cloud hotspot.

4. People scramble to Google maps to learn where Senegal is located.

5. The European Union develops new, tougher privacy guidelines for handling private data. It sues major US companies for violating them.

6. The new Euro guidelines and the issues they raise are utterly ignored in the US.

7. A legislator in Canada picks up on the New Zealand government’s idea to require all financial info to reside in-country. His proposal is hooted down as naive and wrongheaded.

8. The idea is then picked up by the US Congress and Obama administration as a great way to keep America strong and maintain our freedoms.

9. The distinction between “public” and “private” Cloud continues to confuse people; the real distinction remains between enterprise data and personal data.

10. Wolf Blitzer gets ahold of the term “Cloud Computing” and tells us that it refers to Facebook and blogs.

11. The term “blog” is no longer in use, except by Wolf, the Today Show and GMA, corporate shills, and ironical people.

Happy New Year! May the wind be at your back and all of your Clouds be the nice, friendly, fluffy ones.
