Warning if you are a cloud purist who does not take lightly to fun in and around all types of clouds, well, try to have some fun, otherwise enjoy this fun in and around clouds post.


On a recent trip to a video recording studio in the Boston (BOS) area, I took a few photos with my iPhone of traveling above, in and around clouds. In addition, during the trip I also used cloud based services from the airplane (e.g. Gogo WiFi) for cloud backup and other functions.

Here are some additional links about out and about, clouds, travel, technology, trends and fun:

What am I hearing and seeing while out and about


Oh, what was recorded in the video studios on that day?


Why something about IT clouds, virtualization, storage, networking and other related topics of course that will be appearing at some venue in the not so distant future.

Ok, nuff fun for now, lets get back to work.
