Serverless is just glorified CGI. Change my mind.

@mzumquadrat the point is that you get a well-defined runtime, outsource hardware and runtime maintenance, and get auto-scaling capabilities. No one stops you from offering a service like that that is based on (fast?)chi.


@jmehne Thank you for your response. I know that. My toot was more of a jab against all these people that are celebrating serverless as the new big thing because someone decided to wrap (a better implementation of cgi) in fancy buzzwords. :)
