Google has opened up shop in Washington (Reston, VA to be precise). They have fit in nicely so far, building a nondescript building to go along with all the other nondescript buildings that plague Reston. The feds still does not get the cloud, says Mike Bradshaw: "Sometimes they'll look at us and say, 'But what do you actually sell?'". In all honestly, I've worked with many government agencies and most of them get SOA. Of course, in SOA, you are buying something. In any event, federal agencies should NOT be using Google's cloud. They should build their own cloud, with their own security. Do you trust Google with your private data? I surely do not.
