<boomer voice>Remember the gool ol' days when MTV actually had music?</boomer voice>

Shortly after YouTube went mainstream it wasn't uncommon to hear that music videos might die. Some real "video killed the radio star" vibes.

Anyway, I just looked today at a video of one of my favorite new bands. They released a new album a couple weeks ago. In that time one of their videos on YouTube has over 1 million views.

What's that have to do with technology? I think there are some strong parallels to cloud. MTV and YouTube are delivery platforms for #content. We want the visuals mixed with the music we like, but don't want to deal with music we don't like. Cloud is similar, in that we get what we want (apps, server, network), but don't have to deal with the things we don't want. If I want to hear Polyphia's new song, I don't want to have to listen to 15 hours of mumble rap and Taylor Swift on MTV. In IT it means I get tools to integrate my infrastructure natively vs. having to listen to sales people pitch their tools with ungodly complex licensing schemes (I said schemes and I mean it).
