Today, FedScoop announced that Intel and Microsoft will be sponsoring an educational campaign focused on the present and future possibilities of cloud computing called, "Minds in the Cloud." Each week, for 25 weeks, new High Definition (HD) interviews of influential technologists from the government, non-profit, and private sectors discussing their views on the importance of the cloud will be posted to mindsinthecloud.org.

WASHINGTON, Feb. 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- FedScoop announced today the launch of a campaign that seeks to educate and inspire those interested in cloud computing technologies. Minds in the Cloud is a special content edition of FedScoop -- a full-service government media and marketing company -- which seeks to capture insights from technologists, innovators, and government IT leaders around the topic of cloud computing, and is sponsored by Intel and Microsoft.

Initial interviews include those of Aneesh Chopra (Federal CTO), Linda Cureton (CIO, NASA), Tim O'Reilly (O'Reilly Media Group), Nigel Ballard (Federal Marketing Director, Intel), and Teresa Carlson (VP, Microsoft Federal).

IT spending on cloud computing is increasing, with 16 billion USD spent in 2008 and 42 billion USD forecasted by 2012. With Minds in the Cloud, viewers will be able to understand more fully why cloud computing services are becoming increasingly important, and what the future may hold for citizens, businesses, and the government as this shift occurs.
