Everyone likes to talk about 'The Cloud', you hear it casually thrown around at work, maybe even at slightly nerdier dinner or drinks parties. People joke with increasing dis-ease about this mysterious entity where all of our data is stored, accessible at the click of a button fr...om anywhere on earth. But what even is the cloud? WTF is The Cloud? will take readers on a journey from the very first iterations of the internet that we know and (sometimes) love, all the way through to issues of data collection and storage (weren't we all fooled by the 'ten years on' social media trend?) and that mysterious place where The Cloud actually lives.Read more

Kit Eaton (Author) Kit was once told by a teacher that he would become a writer so, contrarily, he went off and qualified as a scientist, then worked in three or four completely different careers until he'd developed a serious enough coffee drinking habit and owned enough cats to finally pick up a pen. Now, with a brain full of eclectic ideas, he loves writing about technology, science, oh... all sorts of different things. Except author bios. He's never got the hang of writing those. One day he plans on going to Mars. JoAnna Wendel (Illustrator) JoAnna has been a science communicator ever since she wrote an essay in 5th grade about giraffes. Now she works as a cartoonist, writer, and editor, doing her best to spread the joy and excitement of scientific pursuit. Throughout her career she has reported, edited, and/or made comics for Gizmodo, Knowable Magazine, The American Scientist, the American Geophysical Union, and NASA's Planetary Science Division. When she's not talking, writing, or drawing cartoons about science, she's either in a forest, dipping her toes in a creek, or hanging out with her cat, Pancake and cornsnake, Banana.
