Amazon offers free cloud computing services to educators

To the extent Westlaw's TWEN and Lexis' Blackboard (along with GoogleDocs, among others) are already forms of cloud computing, I'm not sure whether Amazon's service has any advantages that would cause law profs to forego those in favor of this.  For the time being, Amazon is offering up cloud computing access for free and some of you may indeed discover advantageous ways to use it in the legal writing classroom.  Unlike Twitter, which IMHO still needs to prove itself, cloud computing is for real (at least until that too proves wrong).

Kick the tires here.

Hat tip to the Chronicle of Higher Ed.
