MSP dev project on Google App Engine

February 3, 2009

Followed a link from Joe Gregorio’s blog to a video of about an interesting online wishlist app built on Google App Engine. A minute or so into the video, I thought, “That sure looks like the DJEdna guy.” Sure enough, it’s Thomas Bohmbach (Jr).

I enjoyed Thomas’ Django (& DJEdna) presentation at MinneBar 08. I’m geeked to see a perfect overlap of: MSP guys make a splash, a real-world cloud computing application and Python.

I want to keep my eye on Giftag. I don’t quite grok BestBuy’s angle on the project but the notion of a cross-website wishlist is cool. I can’t put my finger on it but something in the way Giftag works feels properly weblike: Browser plugin + social features + Atom/RSS feeds
