    Interesting collection of articles. A couple of points stood out in particular:

    * The feudalism metaphor works pretty well; the obvious response is “an Englishman’s Datacentre is his Castle” :-) . More specifically, although I run a bunch of Apple kit for both personal and business use, I wouldn’t touch iCloud with a bargepole – in fact, backing up my contact details to it would very probably fall foul of several data protection laws. (Note to Apple: if you want people to use iCloud, I recommend you produce and circulate a white paper on its security architecture, of comparable detail to the excellent iOS security paper you produced in May.)

    So, I run Owncloud on my server infrastructure (which lives onsite, rather than with a cloud provider – although it could go in a suitable CoLo instead). Owncloud’s worth a look; the free version is getting better, and there’s a supported enterprise version for folk in a position and with an need to pay for it (but that doesn’t include me, right now).

    * The Passwords article didn’t really say anything new, but couched it pretty well. It also missed the Duress issue, and how passwords act as the best covert alerting mechanism in such circumstances…
