Architecting in the Cloud

So I am starting to investigate architecting an app for AWS. I have the basics of EC2, S3, SQS, RDS, Simple DB (now replaced by DynamoDB). But I had some lingering questions about architecting solutions for the cloud as I am always a believer that "There ain't no such thing as a free lunch"

So I came across the following wonderful talk on YouTube and the associated slides on Slideshare.
I figured I'd share all the links here for easy access. Enjoy!
