The World of the Cloud

Over on the PSFK blog there are a few brief comments from Blip.tv founder Mike Hudack.  I really liked this one:

“We’re exiting the world of studio executives and entering the world of the cloud.”

Not only do I like the sound of that – wouldn’t you rather live in the world of the cloud than the world of the studio exec – but I think it is worth pondering for deeper meaning.

The idea of the cloud in modern parlance is a way to describe the relative grouping or massing of something, be it opinions, topics, ideas, etc.  An example is the “tag” cloud on the right side of my blog.  The larger the tag term the more often I have used it.  The “cloud” acts as a visual representation of my tag usage.

So, if we are entering the world of the cloud this infers that we are entering a less centralized time for creativity.  That’s pretty exciting.
