As We Might Mine

16/03/2010
Jim Whitehead shared an interesting observation with us. Yes, we are moving towards the cloud! He pointed out that more and more services that used to be desktop based into the cloud. Examples for that are building systems and text editors.

A great potential opportunity that arises with moving to the cloud, extracting fine grained interactions with the app can be recorded easily. The audience raised an issue but the current trends According to Jim is that people have less security issues with web app than they have if a program such as ECLIPSE would start heavily communicating with the evil web.

I think there was a small issue with his statement that security becomes less of an issue if it is a web app, but Jim made an analogy to the lack of security concerns people have with Facebook apps such as FarmVille. I think the problem with this analogy is that developer usually are more security aware than the regular FarmVille player.
