San Francisco Protesters Wasted Their Time by Targeting Kevin Rose

See on Scoop.it - Startup & Silicon Valley News, Culture

The thousands of tech workers flooding into SF and the effect their money has had on the cost of living here has been an increasingly explosive issue. There have been protests from local activists and even a weird bar fight involving Google Glass. Journalists from the East Coast like to come out here now and opine about how the city itself is being changed irrevocably; that it “doesn’t know what to do with” its newfound cash. Over the weekend, Kevin Rose was the latest object of ridicule. That kind of came out of nowhere for me, and didn’t seem quite appropriate.

Each cloud hosting provider has some type of bell or whistle unique to their own user base. Box’s bold move will no doubt inspire other cloud players to move forward with their IPOs.


John Boitnott's insight:

There should be some very interesting developments in cloud tools over the coming years. Here are my thoughts about what may happen.
