Enterprise software marketeer Christian Horak has been having fun with his Twitter network investigating whether it's possible to encapsulate "Cloud Computing" for the layman within Twitter's stringent 140-character limit.
Responses so far include one from JP Morgenthal ("Cloud computing is...The big rental station in the sky") and another from Suresh Ramakrishnan ("Wherever you go, there your applications are!").
