'Let's build a crime cloud': Bad cloud ideas on the rise

Source:  iStock

The number of bad cloud ideas people bring to me over the years keeps increasing. Ideas such as, "I want to provide a place for people to play videos or music in the cloud." I think that's been done. "I want to create a cloud just for criminals." That was a new one, and I'm still not sure what it means, exactly. I don't hear about most of the really bad ideas, because I refuse to sign non-disclosure agreements -- my trick to get out of the situation. I guess companies don't want me to steal their "crime cloud" idea.
