Interesting.  Eben Moglen is a very clever person with a clear and (in
my view accurate) vision of the future.  His point is that the cloud
represents a shift away from "personal computing" so that we no longer
own our data, nor in some cases our own software (0MQ can become
proprietary in the cloud).
