Cloud computing is inexpensive, instantly scalable, and easy to set up. It gives everyone access to massive computing power, says a University of San Diego study.
The researchers make the case that cloud computing is keeping the cost of storing information down, and is making broadband faster as more people can access it. In combination, these two factors will enable people in the low-and middle-income bracket to enter into the competitive global economy.
This also applies to politics, organizing, and creating social change. The net can greatly speed and streamline organizing for change. And in the cloud, it doesn’t matter if you suddenly get 100,000 hits because what you’re doing just went viral – the cloud will expand to meet the load.
