As Cloud Computing Takes Hold, Data Caps Are Sure to Follow – NYTimes.com

This is an interesting David Pogue post predicting that as more and more data moves to the cloud, more and more ISPs (including home ones) are going to cap data.

I predict that as the cloud becomes less economically feasible due to these kinds of fees, the ability to save work and data locally will become a feature.

We moved from the mainframe-terminal model (which is kind of a cloud metaphor), to local, independent machines. Now, we’re back to the cloud.

Eventually, we’ll return to local computing. So don’t delete all of those local files quite yet.
