Exactly. It goes in cycles of maybe 15 years going from one extreme to the other (centralized computing <-> de-centralized).

1) single big computers and super computers

2) main frames with linked terminals

4) Web2.0 / cloud and smartphones (with cloud services)

5) upcoming next de-centralized hype
