    Would you not be breaking some kind of agreement / copyright doing this? Hack implies there is something underhand but you give no mention of what google might think to this being done..

    Huh, I got the agreement that the Google App Engine was basically just a free hosted Apache/Python server (or was it Perl?).

    Actually, a hacker is just a coder. In recent times people have associated a hacker with being a person who does harm to others via underhanded methods. This is just a porting of the environment / code.

    agreed, in the beginning you had Hackers (who did good) and crackers who did bad but the media blurred the lines and it became only hackers, kinda like how we have white hats, grey hats, and black hats. But Im glad someone else knew about this too I hate it when the term hacker is misused >_<

    we always had b/w hats. u didn't crack your way into nasa. but if this guy is simply a coder doing good.. then by your definition of hackers doing good, this is the correct usage of the word!
