Tim O’Reilly on the Future of Cloud Computing and Gov 2.0

Tim O’Reilly shares his insights and thoughts on the future of Cloud Computing in the following video from the Minds in the Cloud channel on YouTube.

Of the many excellent points he makes, the one that is the most noteworthy is the fact he sees the costs of testing new ideas plummeting as Clouds emerge as low-cost testing platforms. IBM already has a complete application testing service that is Cloud based that aligns with the insights shared.

Most fascinating are the insights into how government needs to be more of a platform and less of a bureaucracy. The points made about analyzing the strongest and weakest areas of the existing healthcare system are especially timely given the passage of the bill over the weekend.  At just over 4 minutes this video is worth watching.
