Picnik has seen both the good and the bad when it comes to the cloud. Yeah, it lets you scale some or all of your infrastructure dynamically. It also has a very low cost of entry.

Small company veteran Justin started his career doing building embedded systems ranging from imaging sonar to home automation. Then, he jumped head first into web operations by building the backend infrastructure for Picnik.com. He is currently a Software Engineer in Google’s Seattle office.
