Found time !!!

Well it is a snowy day here in Washington. The ice storm is on its way. The shelves no doubt will be empty by the time I go to the store. Well the TP and Milk will be gone. My meeting got cancelled today. Which means I now have 6 hours I did not have to work my todo list.

You got to love found time.

Cloud Computing = ASP = VAN

All the sudden I feel like I am back in the year 1985. It was before the Internet made it big. I was at GE Information Services. We hosted corporate applications. The corporations could dial up any where on the planet before the Internet and broadband made dial up obsolete. We hosted email, EDI and other large applications. VAN - Value added network.

Fast forward to the year 2003 the year of the ASP. And further fast forward to the year 2008. We got Cloud Computing. I cannot help but see the VAN model the GEIS and other providers invented has come full circle. We went form hosting to not hosting and back to hosting applications. No need to worry about providing dial up. Just need an Internet connection. Back to the future.

Maybe GEIS can be revived. Long live GEIS.
