People get simultaneously awed and confused by new technology. In the SharePoint world, this reveals itself with the numerous options available for running SharePoint: on-premises, in the cloud, in a hybrid model, or as part of Office 365.

This was the point made repeatedly by SharePoint MVP Eric Riz and SharePoint consultant Susan Hanley during the first SPTechCon “G+ Hangout” (available on demand for your viewing pleasure).
