Welcome to Tech Torture with Topher

Posted: 03:04 PM ET

I'm Topher Kohan, and as you can see from the video post above, this is a little blog that the editorial people gave me to try out some first-person tech experiments.

For this week, I am going to try to live in the cloud. If you are not sure what that means, not a big deal. I will try to do 100 percent of my job online and not use any desktop applications. So when I check my e-mail, schedule a meeting or write a document, I will do all of this online and then save it in online storage. If it works, I will be able to sit at any computer in the world, and as long as it has Internet access and a browser, I can log in to some Web sites and work.

So follow along this week and let’s see if this is an easy stay in the clouds or truly. . .tech torture.

Please take the time to drop me a comment or two on what you think of the idea or how I could be more effective in all of this. From time to time, I will drop in and answer any questions you might have.

Nice job, Topher. Now the only else you have to worry about is steady broadband connection. Go AIA. I'm soooo glad I'm out of there!

Topher –

Cloud computing seems really cool and all, but are'nt there any concerns about security of data and having data living somewhere else. It seems cool but also scary. Your thoughts. Thanks

Its such as you learn my thoughts! You appear to understand so much about this, such as you wrote the ebook in it or something. I think that you just can do with some p.c. to drive the message house a little bit, but instead of that, that is fantastic blog. A fantastic read. I will definitely be back.

Wall lights, side lights, standing lamps, floor lamps, lighting columns.. There are so many different types of lighting available, how do you know where to begin? Here, we just focus on the big one. The centrally located suspended ceiling light.In order to find the perfect stylish suspended ceiling light that works in the awkward place that is the centre of a room, you need to fist consider what the room is used for and what kind of lighting you need for those activities...
