@Scobleizer on Twitter last night:
Can anyone stop Amazon’s Jeff Barr?
Clicking through to http://tinyurl.com/39luq2, we read:
But it don’t matter anyway. It’s almost too late for the others to get into the game. It’s amazing (or maybe it should be “amazoning”) to me that Ray Ozzie over at Microsoft has let Amazon have so much runway.
So, I ask you, can anyone stop Jeff Barr and Amazon from totally taking over the corporate data infrastructure market?
This morning all of Amazon’s Web Services went down:
Friday morning (February 15, 2008) Amazon Web Services experienced a system-wide outage of their Simple Storage Service (S3). This outage has affected thousands of websites and Web applications, including Twitter and Raven SEO Tools.
One thing about Scoble: he’s smart, but sometimes he lacks perspective. S3 and cloud computing in general are a great idea, but it’s still a bunch of geeks walking in the garden and looking at the first dew on the rose.
