    Stephen Fry

    I guess many of us do not associate Mr Fry with the heady world of technology. We see him more of a wordsmith with an incredible knowledge.

    Have a look at this The New Adventures of Mr Stephen Fry

    Yes Stephen is in to cloud computing. He is also a big twitter.

    An invite to Edigeek may not go amiss?

    I think he more likes the "new ideas" rather then the actual underlying technology. He his however a true geek, like all good techies.

    On a side note, I love the idea of cloud computering, however it is all a bit scary, the idea everything is controlled by a single system. I like to know where the off button is.

    Sorry calling someone a twitter still seems like something in a slanging match

    now now, don't be a conspiracy theorist.

    It's interesting how the next version of exchange has been 'powering' {i hate the use of that verb aswell} the live@edu service for some 3.5million users!!

    And when RTM exchange 14 will apparently have off-premise and on-premise deployment options and intriguely a mixture of the two for some environments.

    Hosted models are here and will be more prevalent, so best read that small print.

    Live@edu could certainly cut costs and hassle.

    Cloud computing and software as a service. No need for as many servers in a school?

    If we have really good 3G no need for broadband in a school.


    What can we get rid of next

    of course he's an Apple lover, he's a thesp!

    Style over substance!

    Having said that...... I'd have an iPhone, if Simons daughter wants to sell me hers in 3 months!

    For those of you who have Heads that are not in to IT, mentioning Mr Fry's use of IT might get them to think.

    Actually I think that asking the question does you head use IT could be a poll.

    Then cross reference it with IT spend, even better.
