I am playing with Amazon Web Services as well, EC2 AMI's (especially EBS backed ones) are very cool. The new web interface console is also very nice. This is definitively very useful and promising technology.

The only downside is that you are somewhat trapped in their environment, but less so than with some others.

Randal did a Floss show about Openstack (a few weeks back). Perhaps we should target that instead of AMI?
