A Cloud Collaboration Experiment

ComputerTotaal! is attempting one of the world’s first and largest experiments in cloud collaboration

I have started my one-time guest editorship of ComputerTotaal!, by far Holland’s largest monthly IT magazine. My goal is to make the summer edition (#8) one of the world’s first and largest experiments in cloud collaboration.

Lead by five guest editors, reviewed by an editorial board of several hundred and with potential contributions from the 100K+ readership, the content of this edition is to be created and reviewed in, on and through the cloud.


One of the aspects to be evaluated are the collaboration possibilities that Office 2010 and Microsoft’s consumer cloud platform such as SkyDrive are to deliver. But also alternatives like Google Apps and other SaaS options will be reviewed. Social cloud aspects reviewed include the blurring of work, play and home activities.

Interesting is that although this is clearly an experiment, which even uses a beta (office2010) to create the content, the over hundred thousand strong paying readership and the numerous advertisers of the magazine http://idg.nl/producten/1/computer-totaal/ do rightfully expect the quality to be at least on par with traditional methods. Very much like we see in today's “enterprise cloud experiments."
