RECENT CLOUD COMPUTING QUOTE:

""The convergence of mobile, social networking, cloud and IT consumerisation will lead to a trust management ecosystem, with third parties brokering the service. And this will happen in the next decade.

Sites such as Facebook and LinkedIn have shown that people are capable of building their own trust networks and this needs to be extended into the identity sphere, either among individuals or as a paid trusted identity-as-a-service offering. We now have this dataset of a global relationship map. The entire world is mapping relationships. It's only a matter of time before business follows suit."
