Some people say that cloud services are just web services rebranded. Since I’ve always defined web services inclusively, I tend to agree. [me too]

"Journalspace.com has fallen and can't get up. The post on their site describes how their entire database was overwritten through either some inconceivable OS or application bug, or more likely a malicious act. Regardless of how the data was lost, their undoing appears to have been that they treated drive mirroring as a backup and have now paid the ultimate price for not having point-in-time backups of the data that was their business."
The site had been in business since 2002 and had an Alexa page rank of 106,881. Quantcast said they had 14,000 monthly visitors recently. No word on how many thousands of bloggers' entire output has evaporated.

Google tells Ars that the Terms of Service were only ever intended to make sure the company had the legal right to display user-created documents with others. "To be clear," a company spokesperson said, "Google will not use your documents beyond the scope that you and you alone control."

But the worries still existed, so in October, Google issued an update to its Terms of Service designed to remove all ambiguity. It emphasizes that users retain ownership and copyright over their works, and also makes clear that Google's license is for "the sole purpose of enabling Google to provide you with the Service in accordance with its Privacy Policy."

By that year many developers had started hearing stories like Nelson Minar's presentation on the problems Google had seen with SOAP based Web services and sought a simpler alternative. This is when the seeds of Mark Baker's evangelism of Roy's dissertation eventually bore fruit with the Web developer community. However a Ph.D dissertation is hard to digest. So the message of REST started getting
