Montana and the Cloud
As we were sitting up near Logan Pass in Glacier National Park this past week, my wife asked me what I was thinking about. I replied that the shape of the mountain range reminded me of one of the central themes of Cloud Computing - you pay for only what you use.
I enthralled her with the story of how unused capacity should be free like the sky, and how the workload needed to be stable and ready to handle the peaks and valleys of real use.
OK, maybe enthralled is not the right term...
