Adopt clouds securely?
Adopt secure clouds?
Adoption by means of secure clouds?
Adoption by means of insecure clouds, but securely?

Harsh imagery 

Analytical skills (especially linguistic) are more important than "pure tech skills" in any tech field full stop.

The losses incurred due to people being incapable of understanding one another are *staggering*.

So the next person who complains about technically unqualified female CTOs will get my RSA dongle as a suppository!

The border wall isn't about racism, it's about *using* racism to move money from taxpayers to businesses.
