    In the context of going ‘green’, do you think the numbers of the devices & supercomps would cancel themselves out or are we in for massive ‘Wall-E’ compacted trash scenario?

    Crazy that 80 years later the concept of 5 computers may actually start to come true! At the GoEverywhere blog we recently talked about using netbooks as a viable business solution and using GoEverywhere to access your files all in one webtop. The webtop solution aggregates your files and runs all of your SaaS applications in one place with one quick login to get even more out of your netbook. It’s currently a free beta and we’d love to have you try it out. Thanks for the great post! I will be back for sure!

    What happens when the few in charge of these mega-computers start limiting access to the Cloud, based on their respective biases or idiosyncrasies? Or when they start logging/reporting every personal bit that of information that must pass through their networks?
