Here is a quick summary:

What's possible in a post Web 2.0 world? Innovation continues at a
mind-bending pace, and this presentation will showcase some
thought-provoking new directions that Web Services are headed in. The
presentation will provide an overview of Amazon Web Services,
including a Web Service named Mechanical Turk that allows computers to
make requests of people, an online storage service, a Virtual Server
service, and more. There will also be a demo showing how to set up the
virtual server. But mostly this will be an opportunity to have a
discussion about innovation and entrepreneurial tools.

thanks,
Rob
