trusting "the cloud"

i keep going back and forth about keeping my data “in the cloud“… i have been using gmail A LOT over the last months/years. it has become the way i frequently communicate with family, friends and clients.

here is the rub – in it’s “proper” format it is only available while you are online so if your internet is down, if google goes down (hey, it happened again last night for a couple of hours) or something gets “wonky”.

i have been keeping backups and files online with mozy and dropbox.com. if either of these services was unavailable for an extended period of time when i needed them – i would be up a creek!

do you trust “the cloud”? check out this article too from lifehacker and let us know what you think…
