Ray Ozzie's Vision of the Cloud

Ray Ozzie, the chief architect of Microsoft in a recent memo to his direct reportees and executive staff at Microsoft talked about the way cloud would eventually evolve
.
He says,
We’re moving toward a world of

1) cloud-based continuous services that connect us all and do our bidding, and
 Continuous services are applications that reside on the cloud, run continuously, take advantage of the cloud characteristics to achieve infinite scalability, abstract a lot tasks that can be relegated to the background wherever it helps us define a simpler world.

2) appliance-like connected devices enabling us to interact with those cloud-based services.
Anything that has a connection to enable us access the continuous cloud services. It could be things as pronounced as smart phone, TVs, etc to something as uncharacteristic of having connectivity as your wallet, your shirt, your shoe sole, etc that connect to services on the cloud to transmit real time date further lending to the services model. With IPV6 being rolled out and the Internet of Things concept  turning these into a reality, Ray Ozzie's connected devices does seem to be taking shape.
This is quite an interesting note from the viewpoint that it adds a certain perspective to the otherwise chaotic or rather nebulous environment we are seeing as cloud computing gains traction.
