How to create a job in Elastic MapReduce

I’m on a crusade to spread the word about the potential of Elastic MapReduce to revolutionize data processing for startups (a 100 machine cluster for $10 an hour!) so I’ve produced a 7 minute screencast showing exactly how to create a new job. I’ve embedded the YouTube version above, or you can find a higher-quality version here.

I’m thinking about rolling out a series of these, taking you all the way from gathering the source data to visualizing the results, so please let me know what you do and don’t like about this version.
