Have you trademarked your cloud?

Remember two years ago when we had that little stir up over the term Web 2.0?

Well today we have moved on to the next industry focus which is Cloud Computing. Cloud Computing has been around for a while now, and developers have been drawing little cloud symbols for a few decades now to relate computers to networks.

Guess what?

Dell wants to own Cloud Computing!

Way to go Dell!

Does this mean we are going to see them footing all of the Cloud Computing conferences for the next few years?

Obviously if you have an interest in working in this space you might care about the trademarking of a generic term.

On a related note, it makes me wonder if I should have trademarked "Organic Open Source" .

That term has been getting a lot of usage as of late. Maybe I should nab it before I have to figure out how to generate the little "TM" symbol on my keyboard :)
