Hmmm, I've seen this five cloud trends Gartner retweet before. It points to a press release that hypes a Gartner report entitled "Five Cloud Computing Trends That Will Affect Your Cloud Strategy Through 2015." There's nothing too startling in the press release: Gartner tries to dispel "confusion and misunderstanding" perpetrated by vendors. My sense is the CIOs are not all that confused about the cloud - effective deployments are the issue.
My favorite cloud retweet this week is number 5 from Infoworld blogger and Blue Mountain Labs CTO David S. Linthicum, whose cloud tweets are consistently rewteeted a lot. This tweet has very practical advice, such as starting out on the public cloud with a tactical problem. Number three should be left off this list - the link does not work.

As usual, our note on the methodology here: We leverage Topsy to determine the most retweeted (popular) Tweets and then filter through for what we think is the best information for CIOs. Numbers 9 and 10 did not have retweets, but were added for relevance.
