I completed a DropBox variant [1] of the exercise above. Based on a 
quick exchange with Nathan, I realized that S3 isn't as simple as 
DropBox since it sets the mime type of the turtle doc incorrectly. Of 
course, this was lost on me since I mount S3 buckets to my ODS-Briefcase 
(aka. ODrive) leaving it to set document mime type (text/turtle) via the 
Amazon S3 API.
