There is an interesting video on Slashdot of an interview with Tom Henderson, principle researcher at Extreme Labs, Inc. He provides a primer into his well founded concerns on privacy in the world of cloud computing. His research has led him to the position of distrust of companies hired to store data on behalf of users as opposed to the advantages of these users self-storing and archiving. It is reminiscent of the convenience placed above privacy that is coming to a greater magnification today and likely to be more so into the future.
Mr. Henderson wrote several articles in his Thumping the Clouds blog relating to the rise in cloud technology and its encroachment into private lives. The link can afford readers with good information on the topic.
