Tiny Deathstars of Foulness

My latest piece on Huffington Post:
OMG the cloud! Everything must go to the cloud, and now! And sometimes finding a tool is about workflow. And the workflow should make sense and be awesome. But there’s an argument that you shouldn’t even keep a lot of data unless it’s kept confidential and therefore properly secured.
