Hi All,

I may have an opportunity to join a pre-IPO startup involved in
enterprise-level cloud computing. My job would entail documenting APIs, one
of the few things I've never done during my 20+ year career as a tech
writer.

Looking for something a step beyond "Dummies" books, I'm in need of some
primers and am asking for your suggestions. These could be books or
websites. Given that I need to quickly get ramped up, hopefully there are
some quick-reads available on both topics:

- An executive overview: Enterprise level cloud computing
- Documenting APIs

I'm wanting to avoid propeller-head volumes that might get bogged down in
daunting geekspeak, for that would be beyond my level of comprehension at
this juncture (later=OK).

Thanks for your suggestions.
