Administrator, Microsoft on the Issues

In late January, Microsoft General Counsel Brad Smith delivered a speech at the Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C. on the burgeoning field of cloud computing.  Brad outlined specific industry and legislative actions that Microsoft believes should be acted upon promptly to advance the potential of cloud computing, while protecting users’ privacy and enhancing the security of their data.

Today in Seattle, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer takes a broader look at cloud computing in a speech at the University of Washington.  Steve will discuss what’s ahead for computing, generally, with a particular focus on how cloud computing will change the way people and businesses use technology. The speech gets underway at 10 a.m. PT in the Paul G. Allen Center for Computer Science & Engineering.

A Webcast of the speech will be available at http://www.microsoft.com/presspass/presskits/cloud/.  Once the speech has concluded, we’ll embed the video here for anyone who can’t view it in real time.
