Tung-Hui Hu: Understanding the Digital Cloud: Where it Came From and How
How do you picture the data cloud we hear so much about? Perhaps in your mind's eye it is a universal, untouchable collection of pixels and electricity pulsing somewhere far above our heads. Last night's Thinking Aloud featured Tung-Hui Hu, who is trying to change how we think about the data cloud. In his book "The Prehistory of the Cloud," he deals with the idea of privacy, the balance of human power in the realm of technology, and the cloud as a metaphor for a tangible storage space for digitized information.—Original airdate: 3/23/2017
