The top 10 #cloudcomputing tweets this week suggest a lingering hangover from the Sony and Amazon cloud debacles. My favorite is number 5, which explains that Amazon outage was caused by someone shifting traffic from a primary network to a backup.

Metaphorically-speaking, someone pushed the wrong button.

My least favorite tweet is Accenture's unattributed prediction that the cloud will be a $100 billion market. We've heard that before.
