Towards the end of last year, David Linthicum and I joined GigaOM’s Adam Lesser on a skype chat to take a look back at cloud successes and failures in 2012, and forward to cloud opportunities in 2013.

GigaOM released the conversation as a podcast this morning. Amazon, Rackspace, Google, OpenStack, DropBox, and more get a look-in during a wide-ranging conversation about various ways in which the cloud is shifting consumer, small business, and enterprise attitudes and behaviours.

Have a listen, and let us know if you agree with our analysis and predictions for the coming year.
