http://www.manucloud-project.eu is another example. I believe that our only survival is in patents , carbon footprint tax, disclosure statement on social responsibility by Global companies. Manufactured products will have to be supplied through the provision of services where product-service at the end of their life cycle will have to be fully recycled. You can also motivate consumers and politicians in buying local if you fund their retirement or healthcare through that schema ... no motivation no result !

Preserving the earth must be our major priority for green energy and energy saving and the points explained in the post are clear and all are proving . My point is that cloud computing is still not yet developed enough , though it is very advantageous for business management in term of work effectiveness and management cost ; However; since I have read some stuff about cloud computing security herein http://cloudswave.com/blog , plus some expert point of view here in the discussion, i become somewhat septic to invest in,so to what extent it is safe for data storing , so which are the best reliable companies affording quality services ,

If anything, the cloud might be the very thing industry needs to suck IT and creative jobs out of the US and spread among talented people all around the world. It would be to IT what cheap oil prices and transportation systems are to manufacturing.

To that list you could add 4) using the cloud to enable users to work together seamless in ways to reduce the system configuration headaches associated with PCs, and networks.

Here in Australia the Government has barred Chinese maker Huawei from bidding to supply equipment for the new National Broadband Network. Good call!

I don't see how "the cloud can usher in the next wave of technological innovation and provide a new engine for economic growth". The cloud is the latest extension and implementation of the Internet revolution. Services continue to be developed and resources provided without regard to geographical boundaries. Some economies of scale are achieved with virtualization techniques that reduce the resources required to grow capabilities. I see the cloud as an evolutionary change, not a revolutionary one.

Does anyone have concerns about security of IP in the cloud? Let's see: let me take a bunch of Faberge eggs, put them all into a basket located I-don't-know-where, operated by who-knows-who, and just sit back and relax. Um. Mark Twain said that it was stupid to put all of your eggs in many different baskets, right? But he also added, "but watch that basket." This is the difficulty with the cloud: there's nothing to watch. You must depend upon unseen agencies to insure privacy and integrity of your property.

This is precisely the type of cloud application Zysman, et al, believe will give innovative tech companies in the West a competitive edge. You leverage the cloud to add value during production --Zysman argues that even services are "produced." It's not manufacturing, per se, but we probably do need to start thinking about "production" in different ways. The bottom line is that if what you are producing also produces jobs with decent wages and a future, then it's a good thing.

Your point #3 is what I was thinking of when I said "embedded intelligence and connectivity" -- Siri is a great example, getting her information from the cloud. And to answer your question about what happens when you lose the link, I think iPhone 4s users already know. Siri says "There's a problem. Try again later." That's a euphemism for "the Siri servers are overloaded right now and I can't get the information you asked for."
