Re: Question to candidates: on-line services

    Cloud computing actually represents the future of innovation,

Let's not be so quick to proclaim a future that we might want to

"Cloud computing" is a nebulous term; it means using Internet servers.
There are many ways to use servers; some pose ethical problems and
some don't.  Even if the server is running all free software, it might
do various bad things to its users -- or it might not.

for a discussion of one issue that applies to some network services.
There are other issues too.

People should think carefully before using an Internet service, and
should consult their consciences before developing one.  So it would
be wise to avoid terms such as "cloud computing" that encourage making
a blanket decision, without considering the issues of each case.
