Cloud of Clouds is the new new meme, burying Semantic Web. You can see Vint Cerf in his traditional vest.  We’ve asked for the names of all those attending, perhaps that will come out soon.

In the meantime, we see Google and CISCO-Nokia going head to head, whle Amazon and IBM fritter on the sides, HP brings out SkyRoom, and China creates its own Google killer.  What India might be up to is a mystery–if we were in their shoes we’d be putting a Nokia factory in EACH province, and demanding that all computers sold in india be wireless equipped and capable of creating ad hoc neighborhood clouds that can survive the Obama Administration’s shutting down of the Internet in the USA.

Like Google.org, which Larry Brilliant ultimately walked away from, this has token money from Google and is a really great idea badly funded.  It has Vint Cerf and Ray Kurzweil, and it claims to be seriously interested in ensuring that we understand the future impacts of technologies–something of a contrast to the Kurzweil-Spivak “technology ubber alles” views expoused in book-length form.

We have added this to our Professional Sites, and will await further developments.

Dr. Vinton Cerf, one of several founding parents of the Internet, inspiration to the global Internet Society, and today a mentor to Google, which seeks to place all information at the disposal of the people of the world, is without question one of a handful of individual who have impacted on every person’s life, whose life’s work could be said to prove the point that information can deter conflict and create stabilizing indigenous wealth.
