I'm a co-founder at AppScale, located in Santa Barbara, California. I love programming and learning new programming languages.

Some open source projects I've been involved in:

AppScale - an open source implementation of the Google App Engine APIs. Runs App Engine apps written in Python, Java, Go, or PHP over Amazon EC2, Google Compute Engine, Eucalyptus, Xen, or KVM.

Active Cloud DB - a software-as-a-service that exposes a REST API to any of the databases that AppScale supports (e.g., HBase, Cassandra, MongoDB) or the Datastore that App Engine supports.

Neptune - a domain specific language that automatically configures and deploys high performance computing apps over AppScale. Run your MPI, MapReduce, X10, and other codes automatically over EC2 without needing to know how to start them and configure them!

comment EC2 - Log into self w/o a key or password
Ah, thanks for the info. I've updated the post with more info based on that, and I can confirm that it happens on other Xen boxes, so it's not just an EC2 thing.

Hmm, I'll have to check it out. Do you know the usual location of where the auth logs are stored?

comment EC2 Traffic Between Nodes
Certainly! That's the reason why I don't want to open up all the ports to the world, and just want any node to talk to any other node. It seems like that's what EC2 does but I can't get any confirmation one way or the other, so I'll just have to try it out on my own and see what happens.
