Had nice chat today with Joe Weinman from AT&T. He had a very unique take on utility / cloud computing and it's adoption within enterprises. During the conversation he also pointed me to a site Joe put together called Complex Models. The site is a simulation resource intended for a small number of models addressing structure, dynamics, and financial analysis of utility and cloud computing, random graphs, power law preferential attachment graphs, and other simple models that may illustrate complex, emergent characteristics or behavior. If your into playing with model, is a cool site to check out.
I found the Value of Utility Resources in the Cloud particularly interesting.
