Silliness-as-a-Service

Comments (7)

With the sudden and ubiquitous emergence of PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service), I thought I’d investigate several other "aaSes" as I always thought PaaS was something VC’s did.

It all started with SaaS which those of us in the know refer to as ASP 2.0.  My heart beats quickly for the days of "hosting", "ASPs", and "On Demand."  Shoot – I even miss eSomething.  Fortunately, Cloud Computing will enable lots of TLA’s for us to enjoy.

    Brad, I think AaaS is Aggregation as a Service – aka Newsgator.
