Part Deux: Old Man Microsoft Yells at Cloud

Following Larry Ellison's lead, Steve Ballmer speaking with venture capitalist Ann Winblad at the Churchill Club last Thursday, the Microsoft CEO addressed the differences of opinion on cloud computing.

"I think when people talk about cloud computing they're talking about taking some stuff, putting it outside the firewall, and perhaps putting it on servers that are also shared--or storage systems--that are also shared, perhaps with other companies that they know nothing about."

That's actually a pretty good description. Let's hope MS gets it right.
