    This site is one of a syndicate (listed below) of blogs related to new trends in Information Technology (IT) and other technologies (linked below), primarily focused on "smaller scale" businesses and individual contributors, all written by Steve Stroh.

    For ten years I wrote passionately about Broadband Wireless Internet Access (BWIA), which is now generically called WiMAX. In 2008, WiMAX has essentially matured and I've expanded my writing to include IT and technology.

    My primary blog is Micro CIO (Chief Information Officer).

    All of my articles (beginning 2008-01) from my entire blog syndicate, freelance, archive, and other writing are listed at

I don't know if you will classified it as "good coverage" but I see this as an important trend. I plan to offer my personal views on how cloud computing will affect the way government does business in my blog. Below is an excerpt from my earlier post.

"Since my focus is on technology in the public sector, the impact of Web 2.0 technologies is really turning my head. According to Maryann Lawlor of Signal Magazine, even government agencies are recognizing the effect of Web 2.0. According to her, "The Web 2.0 revolution is impelling cultural change faster and to a greater degree than ever experienced in recorded history, and democracies that answer to their populaces already are feeling the effects of that change—and ignore those effects at their own risk."

William Vajda, chief information officer (CIO), U.S. Department of Education, and co-chairman of the best practices committee, CIO Council is also watching these technologies closely. He describes Google as an internet intermediaries— an entities that is willing to step in and give the people what they want because they have access to the questions that people actually ask. This position makes then better positioned to know what is on the public’s mind than some government officials.

The U.S. intelligence community is also getting into the act. For example the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) has made these technologies part of its information-sharing acceleration campaign. They have even developed a Wikipedia knock-off called Intellipedia for intelligence community."


I'm new to cloud computing. I've read lots of stuff available on different websites related to the topic.
I want to deploy EUCALYPTUS cloud and test its working. How to build the front end so as to see that the cloud is working??

Any suggestions are welcome..
