Amazon Web Services

I’ve been a bit busy this week, so I haven’t mentioned the Amazon Web Services talk that I went to on Monday evening. Amazon Web Service Evangelist (cool job title) Jeff Barr talked for almost two hours about what Amazon are making available. It was all very interesting and I wish I had more time to investigate it in depth.

I had an idea for an application during the talk but then Jeff mentioned Wish List Buddy as an example. It doesn’t do all that I was thinking of, but it’s a start. Maybe I’ll find time to work on my version at some point in the next few weeks.

Oh, and I loved the phrase “artificial artificial intelligence” to describe Amazon’s Mechanical Turk service where you can use human input as part of your application.

Thanks to Jeff for giving the talk and Dean for organising it.
