Blogging idol – glancing back after a decade - IT World Canada (blog)

IT World Canada via itworldcanada.com

I started blogging almost 10 years ago as part of IT World Canada’s “Blogging Idol” contest. While the contest rules evolved over the few years it existed, Blogging Idol started off simply enough: contestants were given a set of topics and a fixed number of weeks to post blogs, with one topic per week.

Cloud computing was already a popular topic in 2008, even though I would not get involved in ISO cloud standards development for two more years. Some of my blog titles were: Of course, at the time Amazon had introduced its Elastic Compute Cloud (August 2006) and Microsoft was close to announcing Azure in October 2008.

Since that time, we have seen cloud computing become more and more mainstream, and more formalized (NIST and ISO/ITU have published standards). Cloud computing has crossed the chasm!.

There are, of course, many other possibilities for such a list, and I have no doubt that cloud computing (and other recent technologies) will eventually be viewed as a milestone in the history of ICT. My more recent blog titles illustrate the differences in the conversation today: These topics are an indication that cloud computing has become a standard option for designers and that we are building on it as an accepted base, not trying to justify it.
