Google D.C. Talk tomorrow: The Future of Cloud Computing

Recently, there's been a lot of talk about the possibilities of web-based services in "the cloud," a new evolution in computing that gives individual users the power to access and deploy applications and services through the Internet.

Tomorrow morning, we'll be hosting a discussion on the future of cloud computing and technology policy at the Newseum in D.C.

Jeffrey Rayport, principal at the Marketspace consulting group and one of the nation's leading experts on digital strategy and marketing, and Andrew Heyward, former President of CBS News, will present the findings of their new study. They will assess the possibilities, risks and returns of cloud computing; the next steps in moving forward; and potential implications for technology policy.

Bernard Golden (CEO of HyperStratus) will offer commentary and Chris Dorobek (co-anchor of The Daily Debrief on Federal News Radio 1500 AM, managing editor of, and editor in chief of the blog) will moderate the discussion.
