AWS Lambda, the new awesomeness in Cloud Computing™, reminds me of… CGI.

In Lambda, HTTPS requests are just one of the many types of events it can handle, but it’s the most interesting one. There’s been some IndieWeb interest in using Lambda for Micropub and Webmention endpoints that update static websites.

We can do better! No SDK required. We need a CGI Cloud. I might build that as a demo for sandblast :-)

Posted a response on your own website? Send a Webmention:

(Even better - implement automatic Webmention sending on your website. And set up indie-config to make reply/repost/like buttons work.)
