There's plenty more discussion at the conference touching on the "what ought to be in the cloud, and who owns it?" Danny O’Brien, international outreach coordinator for the Electronic Frontier Foundation, gave a session about why innovation still comes from the edge of our networks during which he pointed out that the primary problem in giving data to the cloud is that most services are honeypots. "Even if they go to great efforts to protect your data, [these services] become the one stop shop for hackers, government, or their own corporate temptation."
They have no vested interest in protecting that data, said O'Brien. Yet we trust them to give us a feeling of privacy. "This is a strange and weird result," he said.
The conversation is obviously continuing... and it needs to.
