Regarding Steve Wozniak's Cloud Criticism

I'm quoted in this Network World article about the recent hoopla about Steve Wozniak's comments on the Cloud.

It's hard to get a lot across in a short quote, but I do believe that the broker pattern allows for businesses to reduce lock-in to any single cloud vendor, and to control what data is sent to Cloud services and what data is not.

Mark O'Neill, CTO of cloud broker Vordel, says there's another simple solution: Perhaps a company's most sensitive data may not be ready to be put up into the cloud yet. Companies can selectively choose which data is stored in the cloud, allowing users to "hedge your investments," he says.
