Most Online Listeners Stream Classic Rock

Here's something that's definitely unexpected. According to a Wakefield Research survey targeting cloud computing literacy that asked which music from the cloud they listen to, most chose both classic and modern rock legends. The top 10 artists mentioned were:

1. The Beatles

2. The Rolling Stones

3. Michael Jackson (okay, I agree, he's more r&b)

4. Bon Jovi

5. Pink Floyd

6. Bruce Springsteen

7. Eminem (definitely not rock)

8. Maroon 5 (their rock credentials are suspect)

9. Led Zeppelin

10. Coldplay

There are a few other things the survey found:
  • 5% of those who think they're not using the cloud, actually are
  • 59% believe the workplace of the future will exist entirely in the cloud
  • 33% agree that using the cloud allows them to interact with people that they rather not in person
  • 68% recognize the economic benefits of the cloud
  • 14% have pretended to know what the cloud was during a job interview.
The survey just goes to show that the cloud has permeated our everyday lives to the point that we're really not aware that we're interacting with it. Let's hope that this connected remains forever intact.
