Advertising Ephemera - American Statistical Association ASA Connect - Cloud Computing


In the twenty-first century, the delivery of computer services via the Internet, using computers independent of the user, is often known as “cloud computing.” Some professional associations have used cloud computing to provide a discussion center for members. This blue plastic giveaway is in the shape of a cloud. It advertises an online forum, the American Statistical Association's ASA Connect. A related paper sheet gives more information.

A mark on the front of the cloud reads: ASA Connect (/)

The materials were collected at the Joint Mathematics Meeting of the American Mathematical Society and the Mathematical Association of America in January 2015.
