EC2 is pretty cool and Chris McAvoy (the other ChiPy founder) gave a
talk on how to *stuff* with EC2 like create copies of instances all
with Python at a could computing event. That would be a nice ChiPy
topic, btw.

One thing I like about EC2 is that it can scale when my site gets
slash-dotted (is that a word?) and such.  Backups are also pretty

The only downfall is when someone has some policies that prevent their
data from being technically on the same physical device as someone
else's data.
