The Cloud: Now Defined in Wikipedia

Wikipedia now describes “the cloud” for us: “internet-based computing whereby shared resources, software, and information are provided to computers and other devices on demand, like the electricity grid. The term “cloud” is used as a metaphor for the Internet, based on the cloud drawing used in the past to represent the telephone network, and later to depict the Internet in computer network diagrams as an abstraction of the underlying infrastructure it represents.”
