Google AppEngine is the PC of Web App Era

I like this Dave Winer quote on the strategic intent of Google’s AppEngine:

"What PCs did in the 80s, Google is doing now. PCs took the black magic out of owning a computer. Now Google is taking the black magic out of operating a scalable web app. Python is the new BASIC."

Other interesting takes on the announcement include:

Richard MacManus – Google: Cloud Control to Major Tom

Brady Forrest – AppEngine: Host your Apps with Google
