We have been hearing about clouds, but When will it rain?

The frank answer is: i don't know.But it did give me something to fantasize about. let me consider just one possibility of cloud computing. Online data storage. And how it can affect your life.Consider your hard drive, there are very few files that are private in nature, and in quantity very small compared to the rest of your files, most of which are music , movies , pictures, e-books and executables. Most of these are commonly found files. All files have a unique MD5 hash or some other specific and unique characteristic. And these can be easily used to uniquely describe this file from a purely computational point of view.Now just think about your public data being indexed and then pushed onto the cloud. Changes in this index will correspond with the changes on the hard-disk drive, versioned CVS like.Now suppose you loose all the data, maybe by an accidental format, or hard drive crash, you can easily get at this index and by using a connected p2p system like bit torrent, you can …

2009: year's resolution

my last year's resolution was :
I SHALL COME UP WITH SOMETHING REVOLUTIONARY THIS YEAR.....
i had only a fog of an idea before. but now the fog has cleared and i can see how to go about doing it.

Its not going to be easy, and i need to re-learn everything things from scratch. i will need to train myself, because now i can see what is lacking in the education i have received. but i feel it will be worth it completely to have the clarity and depth of vision needed.

Also the future seems to be not using web based computer programs, but something more unconventional, but web-based. however distributed programs are here to stay. So are really small teams doing really huge work (twitter , facebook).

leaving all my other musings aside, my new years resolution ( again ) is:
I SHALL DEFINITELY COME UP WITH SOMETHING EVOLUTIONARY THIS YEAR.
