Parasites ?

Posted on October 1, 2009. Filed under: All, forensic | Tags: , , |

Yesterday I wrote something and used the phrase “parasitic cloud computing”. Thinking some more about it – we already have “parasitic clouds” in the form of botnets produced by malware – the stuff I’m really interested in should be called “symbiotic clouds”, but the two are closely related and may turn out to be different aspects of the same phenomenon.

Gosh – it’s nice to have time to think about these things at last!
