I've always thought this phrase was weak. It's weak in the sense that it's supposed to help describe the process of people putting their information on severs that are away from their homes and businesses.
But why is this a cloud? Who came up with this phrase and decided to apply it to this type of business? It's a really crappy metaphor in the sense that it doesn't help to describe a complicated system.
Feel free to be the first
