Self Funding Cloud Apps

Cloud providers like Amazon and Microsoft could let customers host a web application and limit the available cpu and bandwidth based on current ad revenue.  Put in seed money to get your initial hits, then turn the site into an Ouroborus (self feeding/eating monster).  If users really like the site they can contribute directly or via subscriptions.  Probably not a great idea, but a decent one best suited to not for profit websites.
