Endgame

The Endgame of all this convenience-driven cloud-frenzy. is 2 or 3 players owning the computing platform of the future, shaping it in any way they see fit. The personal and independent computer is unobtainable because of cost or incompatibility with the "cloud" providers platforms. This, very real and eminent, scenario effectively eliminates any kind of free information processing. If "cloud providers" get free reign in the future. can you trust any information at all?

We NEED free computing!! "cloud computing" is slavery!
