Aside from interviewing Werner Vogels at the GigaOM Structure 08 conference, we asked him to dedicate an O’Reilly book on the Amazon Web Services, which we will give away in the contest we’re introducing today. First, watch the video below.
Win O’Reilly’s Programming Amazon Web Services: S3, EC2, SQS, FPS and SimpleDB
Second, follow these simple rules for our summer contest: up until the 15th of August, you can guess what Vogels has written in this book and provide your answer in the comments below. You don’t necessarily have to get it right, but the funniest, most original, most in-depth or closest comment on this post will be picked out by our editors on the 15th of August 2008. The lucky winner will get a free copy of O’Reilly’s Programming Amazon Web Services: S3, EC2, SQS, FPS, and SimpleDB (Programming), with the hand-signed note from Amazon’s CTO Werner Vogels inside!
If you are really creative, we throw in a second freeby, for the funniest fake job title. Get inspired by “Werner Vogels, System Admin at a Small Bookshop (aka CTO Amazon)”
Make your educated guess or just be funny and don’t forget to include your e-mail address (not shown) so we can contact you afterwards and get your book delivered.

Great idea for a contest.
