Peter Gabriel…talk about backup problems

Turns out he had the servers stolen from his website  today they’re announcing up for business for tickets.  Stop and think about this one.  This is a major potential argument against the mainframe/dumb terminal model…except any savvy user is going to have space locally to store data.  So in fact I’m expecting an evolution to backing up online data.  More than that, I’m expecting a real change in the internet in terms of both speed and usability.


Current information is mostly inaccessible.  Spend a day browsing blogs intelligently and tell me you’ve learned nothing.  The problem is that currently it would be nearly impossible to collate the information (don’t tell me about bots; computers don’t yet perceive patterns that well…rather, we can’t write the software).


This is where the current mis-usage of the phrase ‘social networking’ truly hurts.

Mos’ likely more later.

    Thousands of online backup companies exist, from one guy operating in his apartment to fortune 500 companies.

    Choosing the best online backup company will be very confusing and difficult. One website I find very helpful in making a decision to pick an online backup company is:

    This site lists more than 400 online backup companies in its directory and ranks the top 25 on a monthly basis.
