+ - AMAZON CLOUD DOWN! MASS PANIC->

This, as many redditers have noticed, has effected a large portion of the Internet including many startups and popular services. I would like to open a discussion over whether cloud computing really the future or is this putting too many eggs in one basket? With such a central point of failure, it would appear so, but the affordable prices of cloud computing makes it very attractive. Could this be the start of a caste-like system on the Internet where poorer websites all go offline simultaneously?
