(Andy Zynga, CEO, NineSigma)
"Tom Koulopoulos is the prognosticator of cloud-based computing, and Cloud Surfing is his crystal ball! Here he has truly captured the implications of the cloud and the way it is transforming the way we work, live, and learn. His insights into growing accessibility and the collaborative power of real–time connectivity to information and resources is an exciting and invigorating journey." (David DeHaven, Dean, School of Info Systems/Technology Kaplan University)
"Tom does it once again with his new book Cloud Surfing. Entertaining, educational, and a perspective changer." (Carlos Dominguez, SVP Cisco Systems and The Tech Nowist)
"Cloud computing often sounds like a marketing gimmick for IT managers looking to save money on their server farm. In this insightful book, Koulopoulos shows us why that perception is wrong. He lays out a compelling case for what cloud computing is, how it is changing our lives today, and what we can expect in the future — as our access to information, personal relationships, and the businesses we run are transformed in the cloud." (Myers Dupuy, President cbanc)
