Tipping points are the levels at which the momentum for change becomes unstoppable. The Law of the Few The Stickiness Factor The Power of Context Fun fact: Six degrees of separation (also referred to as the "Human Web") refers to the idea that, if a person is one step away from each person they know and two steps away from each person who is known by one of the people they know, then everyone is at most six steps away from any other person on Earth.

The services themselves have long been referred to as Software as a Service (SaaS). The datacenter hardware and software is what we will call a Cloud. When a Cloud is made available in a pay-as-you-go manner to the general public, we call it a Public Cloud; the service being sold is Utility Computing. We use the term Private Cloud to refer to internal datacenters of a business or other organization, not made available to the general public. Thus, Cloud Computing is the sum of SaaS and Utility Computing, but does not include Private Clouds. -- by UCB RAD Lab The full paper is at http://www.eecs.berkeley.edu/Pubs/TechRpts/2009/EECS-2009-28.pdf
