OK, I admit it: I post for startups about why you need to take advantage of the cloud–specifically, the Amazon.com cloud that seems to be available to all and priced for accessibility–but I haven’t quite mastered the Amazon cloud server step. I do use the Amazon S3 servers for all the illustrations on this blog and for some other files, but the server was a bit daunting.

I did, however, run across (recommended by a friend on Twitter) this very nice, simple explanation, with steps along the way and illustrations posted by Dave Winer on ReadWriteWeb.
