Answers to Every STS Question Ever Asked!

STS stands for Seattle Tech Startups, and it is the most subscribed and in-depth conversation about the tech startup community in Seattle.  It has its fair share of controversy, and like any community it has some characteristics that are consistently amusing (such as common questions).  Last night, our CEO Jeff Lawson gave a talk on cloud computing.  Even though we weren’t there, the tweets coming from attendees told us all we needed to know:
