All can be plagiarized from an IBM360 operator's manual. A cloud is nothing but a mainframe and a ruse for you to no longer own your software. Users are too stupid to see this coming.

Hmmm...does government have the means and manpower to collaborate in this manner? I think it would be great if they would work together. However, I agree with goafrit that the standards shouldn't be developed by government, but we can consult them about it. In the US (my angle for the moment) we should focus more on job training and education so that citizens can even understand or participate in the cloud computing standards discussion. We need more qualified talent to help manage and build the infrastructure. We need IT folks, network administrators, and others to implement cloud solutions. More importantly, we need to understand how to make the cloud efficient. On the flip side, the bullet points make a lot of sense as government's hope is most likely to become more efficient by using cloud computing. We want to reduce spending and make sure that we're serving people in a smart, safe way. They handle so much data that they can't afford not to take part in technology that will reduce the TCO.

Take government away from this. We do not need government. Let the market play out the battle.

What an interesting list! I wonder if politicians read the same meaning in these that engineers do and suspect they really don't. And of course, there are always the special interest groups doing their own arm twisting so what becomes law usually looks a lot different than it started.
