Book Idea: Distributed Computing Economics... EXPLAINED

I don't have the time or expertise to write such a book, so I'm giving this idea away in hopes that someone else writes it.

I incredibly impressed by the now classic paper "Distributed Computing Economics" by Jim Gray). (Sadly Dr. Gray passed away much too soon in an accident.)

If you haven't read it, here it is in HTML, or PDF and MS-Word. It is brilliant. It summarizes everything you need to know if you want to predict the next 30 years of "cloud computing."

So here's the book idea: Write a book that expands each paragraph into a chapter. Either write it for college students that are early in their computer science education, or for business executives that are non-technical. Either way, you have an excellent book.

Ok, who's going to write it?
