Published on

A presentation prepared for the 2012 Southern African Online Information Meeting, entitled "Innovation in an Age of Limits".

In this presentation, I explain how cloud computing has affected my everyday life. I also provide definitions of cloud computing, compare it to the industrial revolution, and highlight some dangers associated with this computing paradigm.
