Cloud computing, and the reason behind the blog naming

It's just occurred to me that "Girl In the Cloud" is a bit of a strange name for a blog, so let me explain.

In my current line of work, I am very much exposed to all that's new in the technology arena, and am learning a lot about hosted / cloud computing solutions at the moment. We are rapidly moving towards a hosted world where servers and on-site infrastructure will no longer be something which the average organisation needs to spend money on or concern themselves with. Microsoft are investing heavily in their Azure platform and other hosted services, as are Google, Amazon, Salesforce et al.

So, girl in the cloud it is. Or will be very soon, at any rate.
