Administrator, Microsoft on the Issues

In late January, Microsoft General Counsel Brad Smith delivered a speech at the Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C. on the burgeoning field of cloud computing.  Brad outlined specific industry and legislative actions that Microsoft believes should be acted upon promptly to advance the potential of cloud computing, while protecting users’ privacy and enhancing the security of their data.

Today in Seattle, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer took a broader look at cloud computing in a speech at the University of Washington.  Steve discussed what’s ahead for computing, generally, with a particular focus on how cloud computing will change the way people and businesses use technology. Here is a video of the speech, which was delivered in the Paul G. Allen Center for Computer Science & Engineering.
