Over the last few months, Dalhousie University has been looking much more closely to the possibility of replacing much of its expensive infrastructure with an outsourced cloud service. I was part of the conversation with my presentation (large mov file) on campus on Data Privacy Day and the conversation has been continuing. It has been very interesting to look at three recent articles on Dal News, including a two-part interview with Dwight Fischer, the University's CIO, and particularly the comments by students and other stakeholders on those articles. Check them out:

- Q & A with Dwight Fischer - Continuing the Cloud Conversation (Part II)
