A survey of 1000 people was conducted back in 2012 that had some pretty funny^h^h^h^h^h^h embarrassing results for Cloud computing awareness. The highlight is best summarised by:
“…the survey found that 51 percent of respondents believe that stormy weather can interfere with cloud computing. A plurality of respondents (29 percent) also think that the cloud is an actual cloud. A paltry 16 percent actually knew what the cloud was.” which is taken from http://www.webpronews.com/americans-think-cloud-computing-comes-from-actual-clouds-2012-08.
