Amazon's new CTO

OK, I'm a little late on this, but I've been busy! Amazon have just made my friend Werner Vogels their new CTO. Way to go Werner!

Werner and I have known each other for many years, going back to when I was a PhD student and he was working with Ken on the Isis project. I think Amazon have made a great choice: Werner's a nice guy who's got a good breadth of understanding and can usually hold his own when we have a few drinks together!
