Run your web apps on Google’s infrastructure

Yep it appears you can with the Google App Engine. The figures are pretty impressive with 500Mb of disk storage and 5 million page views monthly. And the price? Well its free!That sure beats my web provider!

Ofcourse they don’t support .NET yet, in fact their development platform is based on Python but they say that is just for starters. What interest me most is if this is going to be one of those moves Microsoft follows? After all they compete with Google on a number of fronts and developer mindshare is certainly one of these areas!

We certainly live in interesting times [:)]
