Cringely: "Server power is easy if we embrace peer to peer"

Interesting. What Amazon is doing right now for consumer storage and compute cycles with EC3 and S3 is relevant. Akin to Walmart building their own power stations and selling back the excess I've not quite understood why Amazon would get in consumer level grid applications. I understand how they can do it (given their in house team and their CTO), but not really why. Maybe it's so they can never be messed around by Internet infrastructure and platform providers when it comes to negotiating deals on these kinds of services.
