but breaking away from client/server paradigm from websites might take us until we can create telepathic websites (imagine that config!)

a portion of a slice of a compute unit of another computer. better?

right; that's why I said "I think you mean PaaS" since saying "serverless" is just confusing to anyone else not inside your brain, at least to me anyway 😄

GAE to me looks like analogy to AWS after having a quick look at their website

Anyway, yeah I've studied them closely, just wondering about particulars on how anyone here may have implemented them @robjingram; if anyone has done that yet with GAE or Heroku and SS and, if so, how they approached it 🙂

c’mon man, I hope everyone knows there are servers behind things, whoever runs them 😄

> GAE looks like just “serverless” hosting

Technically there's no such thing as a serverless hosting of a website (even in VM or Docker situations); rather in this case it's abstracted away such that you don't have to worry about the server (and not like a shared-server) but still have it be both dedicated and scalable. I think you mean it's "just" PaaS and that's what I'm interested in, since it's technically pretty abstract and configuration tends to get a bit particular which I was interested in hearing about how others had implemented (e.g. Heroku requires postgresql, but w/ GAE not sure how you'd configure the secure credentials without putting into potentially committed code for your app.yml file, etc)
