What is this Cloud thing everyone is talking about?

imageWhen Aunt Joanne or sister Debby asks me what is the cloud computing, I point to this video. The official definition is something like:

Cloud computing is a model for enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction. ~ Wikipedia

As the go-to guy for many people about the Internet experience, sometimes it’s nice to simple things up. Can I use simple as a verb?

Okay, what are your questions?
