A new breed of highly-available serverless applications

Jon Udell - A new breed of highly-available serverless applications:

"Bill Seitz alerted me to one of those footpaths the other day: Les Orchard's S3-backed wiki. Outstandingly cool! For those who have not followed the various plot threads closely, this is an evolution of the idea of the serverless wiki. [...] Les has substituted Amazon's S3 network storage for the local disk. It's a wonderful hack that anticipates a whole new breed of highly-available serverless applications."
