Cloud Paper All Wet

On Monday we told you about the "Open Cloud Manifesto," a white paper purportedly from the Cloud Computing Interoperability Forum. Microsoft preempted the release, complaining it was strong-armed into signing it when it had no part in writing it. Redmond declined to sign.

Apparently, sponsors of the Cloud Computing Interoperability Forum had no role either, as the group failed to endorse the doc.

Cloud standards are important, but a single white paper apparently written by a renegade cloud activist is not the way to get them.
