Big News @ Amazon Web Services
Amazon announced the release of Elastic Block Storage, persistent storage service for EC2. So, now, you can rent a complete server with attached storage at AWS. The storage will live even if you destroy the server. Here is a post from Jeff Barr describing the service. Another post by Amazon CTO, Werner Volgels.

Here is the GigaOM post where I first read about the service.

I wish these services were available when I was CTO at Brassring, a SaaS provider in the recruitment automation space.

No post for 6 weeks - I was away on vacation and then just catching up on stuff


Interesting article on on how 3D is getting inserted into websites and social networks. 3D Worlds might do not generate the same level of buzz. Google Lively seems to have received a "me too" reception. However, 3D is a much better experience for stuff and I am sure that we will see it embedded in all sorts of websites over the next couple of years. The article covers technologies that are helping do just that.
