I started this blog in October 2009 while working on a project for an Australian IT company that hired me to identify new technology trends. After many years of writing about upcoming tech (for many years I wrote the Pipeline column for PC Magazine) I was surprised to find there were no sources of news on pure play cloud computing companies.  I set out to create a resource that helped explain the differences between platforms.

Over time, more web resources have filled the gap so I have reduced the number of updates here while I consider the next steps for the site and spend more time on other projects.

One of the projects that I’m most excited about is the launch of Enlightened Schools, a new nonprofit supporting professional development for educators on gender equity issues.  They’re offering a free introductory course to help schools make progress with this challenge. Aside from its important work for education, the website is also an impressive use of cloud-based education (they’re using the LearnDash LMS with WordPress: education in the cloud).
