Enigmatic invites are cooler than straight up invites.  Congrats on
the virtual backpat from the Uncle Goog.

Indeed.   It's a pretty exciting time.  I'm still not entirely sure
what to make of the new sql-free-stack that Amazon and Google are
buying into.  It makes me nervous.  LAMP, in all it's wondrous forms
has been such a rock in my web-life for the past few years, that this
new PARADIGM sort of makes me wet my pants.

If the future is schema-lite db's, cloud controllers and sandboxes,
I'm ok with it...but someone is going to have to hold my hand.  And
get me clean underpants.
