Utilitising Amazon


Looks like Wired will be a good read again next month – now if only I could find somewhere to subscribe to it at a reasonable price in the UK!

Nicholas Carr obviously had an advance copy and gives us an insight to a story about AWS and their growth. I think the whole Amazon Web Services thing is just a great story about how a business was very smart in figuring out how to diversify using spare commodities it had. Now it’s become a business in its own right. 

What other companies should be thinking this way?

    I’ve been a subscriber since 1994 I think.  Love the mag.
