The age of participation. This is how the former CEO of Sun Microsystems, Scott McNealy, describes the age of living and benefit from the cloud. </ H4>
“We believe that we are moving from the Ice Age, the Iron Age, the Industrial Age, and the Information Age, to the age of participation,” said McNealy. “You enter the network and do things: your IM (instant message), your blog, you take photos, you publish, your podcast, you process, you distance yourself, you telemedicine, you are participating in the Internet, not just seeing things”.
Thanks to the increase in cloud-based digital signage solutions, you can now add “you can display signals and digital information” to McNealy’s list of what you can do through the cloud.
