Cloud computing and Wiggo winning the TdF
I was just sitting down to write a new post when I got sideswiped by @Trello. We use their neat board service for publishing articles on the web, when it’s back up you can take a look. However the site is having a ‘mare with its nameservers this morning (thank-you for the alert OpenDNS) so I can’t pull off my notes and other assorted gems for Monday’s post.
Every cloud has a silver lining though so it’s a great excuse to go over Bradley Wiggins (Wiggo) Tour de France GC win on Sunday (Saturday if you are slightly pedant). The first Brit to win the TdF in it’s 100+ year history, he was so dominating he held the Yellow Jersey from day 2 all the way to the end and smashed the competition, grinding them into a fine paste. He’s truly one of our outstanding athletes but what really makes it for me is the absence of ego. He conducted a fantastic interview on Saturday evening where he really realised what he had achieved. Well worth watching, I can’t embed it here due to ITV so you’ll need to go to the ITV site and click on “Wiggins: It’s just incredible”.
