so what you're basically saying though is cloud computing is a nonsense word that can mean anything anyone wants it to?


No - what I am saying is that great liberties that have been taken with defining Cloud Computing have made it seem nonsensical.

Nonsense [mis]conceptions of the Cloud include:
* Cloud == Public Cloud
* Cloud == Web 1.0, Traditional Browser-based client access
* Cloud has no relationship with Virtualisation

This sort of silliness makes the notion of Cloud seem much like a Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland or Through the Looking Glass. The level of misunderstanding such nonsense engenders definitely makes it seem that CC would be nonsense.
