Leon Brocard (aka acme) is an orange-loving Perl eurohacker with many varied contributions to the Perl community, including the GraphViz module on the CPAN. YAPC::Europe was all his fault. He is still looking for a Perl Monger group he can start which begins with the letter 'D'.

[ #29055 ]

I've just released Net::Amazon::S3, which is a Perlish interface to the Amazon S3 - Simple Storage Service. Amazon is basically providing their scalable, reliable distributed filesystem to us, but for a small fee ($0.15 per GB-Month of storage used, $0.20 per GB of data transferred). It is possible to buy cheap disks for less than this price point - however disks die and Amazon can scale.

Amazon is turning into a bit of a network services company, isn't it? Here's hoping people build more cool tools like Brad's Brackup on top of this. Note that I don't ship the module with a test suite that calls the service - because it would cost you $0.01 to run it...
