The Cloud, Explained By Kids [VIDEO]

Filed in Cloud Industry Insights by Garrett Heath | January 17, 2013 4:00 pm

Science, technology, engineering and math are the four components of the STEM acronym that we hear so much about today[1]. Each of these pieces is important not only to Rackspace, but also to cloud computing and hosting as a whole. While 65 percent of grade-school children may grow up to have jobs that haven’t even been invented yet[2], chances are that they will be heavily influenced by STEM.

In this rapidly changing landscape, these students will become the innovators, creators and entrepreneurs of tomorrow. But before they become the great minds of the 21st century, they are the children of 2013. We thought it would be interesting to ask the children of our Rackers a question, “What is the cloud?[3]”

The answers run the gamut from cute to insightful, and we hope you enjoy hearing their answers as much as we did.
