[AmazonAWS:EC2] Bartering Beta Slots : A Sure Sign of a Sure Thing

by M. David Peterson

Amazon Web Services Developer Connection : Want to buy someone's Beta EC2 account ...

This is the title to a recent post in the EC2 Developers Forum.

The post now reads (not sure what it originally read, but I assume it was something that matched the title.),

I'm all set.

Not sure of the details, nor do I plan to find out. What I do want to point out is that when you have people attempting to purchase slots into your beta program, it seems to me you can pretty much write this same beta and related final release into computings history books of successful products.

Maybe its just me, but I am beginning to develop a sense that AmazonAWS can "Do No Wrong."

Hey Google, now *THATS* the kind of corporate slogan I can stand behind. ;)

I saw the original posts. Started at $100, then $250. Not sure if that is where it ended, but that is the last $$ amount I saw.
