Yes, there are so few suitable government applications for cloud 
computing, that perhaps AGIMO should concentrate on those. The cloud 
technology could be applied within computer systems under government 
control, but generally government data (and the data the government 
holds about its citizens) is not suitable for placing on a distributed, 
shared, global computer system.
