    By the time you guys stop navel gazing and working out the etymology of "cloud computing", Amazon’s EC2, Google’s AppEngine and Microsoft’s Azure will have eaten your lunch (and ironically Google is running Java).

    Please sell just one small cloud service today, and I promise I’ll be the first person to congratulate you all on your progress. Remember the Web 2.0 mantra "release early, release often". How do you know what people really want until they taste what you’re baking?
