I typically don’t ignore Adrian (not a wise move), but this time, in all honesty, I ignored his tweet. At the time, the public PaaS market was a race to the bottom. Heroku was killing Engine Yard and I wasn’t really a fan of this space anyway. I felt PaaS’s were too opinionated for building infrastructure and a Public PaaS made it even worse.
