Google Says "Cloud Computing Is" ...

Check out the first suggestion Google gives you if you type "Cloud Computing is"

SOA at Cloud Expo

Techcrunch reports that Google has some implicit suggestions about newspapers, based on the drop-down suggestions it gives when you begin a search with "Newspapers are."

It's a nice example of the hive mind at work.

But check out the first suggestion Google gives you if you type "Cloud Computing is" into a Google search bar.

I won't spoil the surprise here.

Interestingly, Google used to give similar suggestions for "SOA is", but the results are now a lot less frank and confrontational than they were a month ago.

Does this show a change in general attitude about SOA, or is it just that Google cleaned up the results? hmm.
