In Oct. of 2011 a Google engineer, Steve Yegge inadvertently made public an "epic post" on his analysis of why Amazon has started to dominate in hosted web services. At its core is the policy promoted by Jeff Bezos that he would fire anyone for sharing data using non-published methods. We will look at the core events that triggered Amazon's rise as a leader in the web services movement and need for the creation of corporate canonical messaging standards that emulates this trend.
