The end of our first week! CloudAve launched on Monday after lots of behind the scenes work by people all over the place – we’re stoked to be here (or more correctly there) and hope you’ll join us for the ride. As you’ll see below it’s been a busy week with a lot of valuable content for our readers – we hope you agree!
Both Zoli and Ben welcomed the world to CloudAve and discussed whether we’re actually on a suicide mission with this cloud thing – especially after comments made by Harry Debes. Later in the week we looked at a response to Debes’ comment by Dave Duffield.
Cloud Computing to the fore
We took a look at the trend towards self-provisioning of hardware within enterprise and said it’s yet another justification for Cloud Computing being the way forward.
Cloud Computing – the myths and realities
Presenting a presentation
Zoli gave an example of why desktop applications are (or at least should be) a thing of the past.

We don’t bite!
Ben explained why traditional PR doesn’t cut it with him – and gave advice for anyone wanting to get some exposure on blogs he’s involved with.
On email hacks and subverting IT
Krish wrote a timely post about the Sarah Palin email hacking incident.
Email is alive and well
Just to annoy some of the Web 2.0 wonderkids, Zoli told everyone why email is far from dead.

Not content with running the greatest blog this side of… well somewhere, we decided to give a slightly tongue-in-cheek piece of advice to Steve Ballmer.
Anti virus in the cloud
Dan took a look at the move of anti virus software into the cloud in this well thought out post.
Congrats to Michael and the team
