- entrepreneurs need to be selfish and selfless - Business Insider - An interesting view on some of the challanges of startup culture.
- EC2 costs 4 times higher than running internal cluster - (warning bad math) - This kind of math irritates me. Sure a hard drive is cheaper than s3, but s3 isn't just a hard drive.

Aws is more expensive than your own data centre, but that buys you flexibility
