Open Source Is Key to Cloud Computing: Yahoo! SVP

| Shugar: For startups and small companies, there are 
| public cloud offerings coupled with other commercial 
| cloud vendors that can provide a pay as you go 
| infrastructure minimizing CapEx investments and reducing 
| the risk in deploying new products. For larger or 
| enterprise companies, a hybrid model maintaining 
| existing compute infrastructure while leveraging public 
| cloud offerings for less critical or experimental 
| projects may provide more flexibility at reduced CapEx.

| The Advisory Opinion held that as long as the IP address 
| of the party downloading the software in Iran (or other 
| sanctioned country) was logged by Mozillaâs server but 
| not otherwise used by Mozilla (say, for example, to 
| serve to the user a web page in Farsi), the company did 
| not have sufficient knowledge of an export of encryption 
| software to Iran to be liable under the regulations.



Stallman vs. Clouds

| Still, I think that RMS is onto something. The core promise of computing,
| even on a vast network that connects us all, is autonomy and independence.
| It's being free (as in freedom) to operate on your own, and to share what's
| meant to be shared in ways that nobody else can control, and to improve
| useful goods in ways that work for everybody. There are, in those core
| values, imperatives that seem at odds with the dependencies that "cloud
| computing" can sometimes involve.
