«Cloud technologies» as a Stage in the Development of the Information Society

Information technologies have multifold impact on the social development. Initially the Internet was deliberately formed as a network structure that has no single point of control. It became a symbol of decentralization and successes that can be achieved with the help of this organizing principle. «Cloud technologies» in the 2010s have made considerable adjustments to the global structure of information flows. They have strengthened elements of centralization and hierarchy, passing in the «cloud» a significant part of the information infrastructure, previously located in separate computers. The new balance of centralization and decentralization enables to successfully develop not only the «cloud storage» and «cloud computing», but also «cloud production».
