Bob's response to "Thinking Out Cloud's Predictions".  Geva Perry is an optimistic fellow and he came out with a list of predictions that has been picked up at InfoQ (Thinking Out Cloud predictions).

Bob points out: "Predictions with out time-lines are fairly useless. Cars will drive themselves. They will all be electric and many people will own flying cars. As long as I never put a date on it, of course it will very likely come true in the distant future."

He goes on to state: "No IaaS providers keep adding PaaS support and the lines between IaaS and PaaS are fairly blurry. Plus you have all of the not so great PaaS providers, who are not much more than window dressing on AWS, over promising what equates to mostly to vaporware. ... IT shops are not jumping on the public cloud quite yet. There is some trepidation there. Private clouds (on premises and off) and hybrid clouds are going to see a lot more growth than pure public plays. Public does not rule, and it will not rule for a while.
I could disagree about more, but I'll leave it for another day."
