The Cloud is just a 1960s mainframe model for the 21st century

Sadly all the kool kids and hipsters (and many pointy heads) think its cutting edge and the future, completely oblivious that this sort of vendor and enviroment lock-in is exactly why people ran screaming to the hills from this model in the 70s and 80s and unix and then the PC revolution kicked off.

Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it etc etc.
