Cloud Computing for ME (and YOU)

There is a lot of info here on Cloud Computing, but I would really like an active discussion on how to migrate safely to the Cloud. If I travel, if my laptop dies... or for many other reasons, I don't want to be tied to one computer ... can I migrate safely to the Cloud? Is anyone completely in the cloud (head in the clouds?). Please join the Cloud Computing group and join the discussion. Don't know about you, but I need perspective. Best, Ginger
