I really don't see a big problem with cloud computing if you don't mind the possibility of a third party having the ability to browse through your life at any given moment. *Just kidding. I really think it is a cool concept, we just have to make sure that we don't become totally reliant on it to the point that we aren't backing up our files, works, and resources, while just leaving them in the clouds.
