Amazon S3

The true power of Amazon S3 for consumers will be fully realized when people start programming scripts and front-ends that use Amazon’s very cheap storage solution for the back-end.  Russell Beattie reports that there are already people out there writing python scripts to store Flickr photos.  I’d love to have some sort of basic front-end that would allow me to back up anything onto Amazon’s service — it wouldn’t need to be too sophisticated, although drag and drop would be a nice feature.
