I've been interested in serverless web systems ever since I was asked by a client to setup a store on the popular p2p marketplace called OpenBazaar. The idea fascinated me - instead of connecting to normal servers, you connect to peers - like Torrents - and download the websites from them. The only issue for me with this system was that you had to download software to do it. This got me thinking - can you do the same sort of things with normal websites, without downloading new software?

Having only a short space of time to build something (don't ask - but it was about an hour, two including testing and deploying) I hooked up two sponsors - Nexmo for interacting with SMS messages and Pusher for Pub/Sub messaging.
