speaking_in_tech Greg Knieriemen podcast enterprise

In the latest Speaking in Tech podcast, your hosts Greg Knieriemen and Ed Saipetch talk about folk who still mend their own servers, sometimes with the help of a nifty rack-mounted flashlight-cum-laser pointer. Get with the programme, bumpkins: pay to inhale some cloud. Oh, hang on, in the wake of revelations about secret government comms snoopers, they're not looking so backwards now.

Speaking of cloud, will PRISM really smack the US cloud computing industry in the wallet? Whatever law Congress passes, people will still be sceptical about whether their data is accessible to the US government.

Ed fingers closed-source software as a headache for the privacy-conscious biz and Greg considers the humble dev who's testing his app on the public cloud.
