It was a Cloud Conference a few days ago at the Computer History Museum.
Besides, demoing Cloud Wizard, I can also demo some sample apps that I have
written for AppEngine.  For example, a replacement for Simple Queue

A little known reason that you might want to use multiple clouds is that
they have different billing methods.  For example GoGrid does not charge for
incoming traffic.  This makes it the best place for spiders.  Slicehost does
not charge for CPU.  A low memory/high CPU application would be best there.

This might be a fun newbie nugget.  I wrote a script that logs my CPU to a
google spreadsheet.  You can then use Google Visualization services to add
tachometer dials to your igoogle page.  The idea being that you can use
Google infrastructure to provide free/pretty monitoring of your systems.
