Evolution of Communications: Are Email’s Days Numbered?

He writes that Facebook is often the preferred communication mechanism for avid Facebook users, and that the average age of a Facebook user is now advancing above the age of 35 years.

Cloud Data Services and The Day of Reckoning


Sorry to start the year off with such an ominous title, but one thing I like to think about is how cloud services will change our way of life. They will initially change it for the better but once customers begin using high-volume data services in the cloud they will realize that there are parts of the service they may find missing or incomplete for some aspects of their business. Users may find that they need a “historical record” of their content should an ediscovery event occur in their life.
