Weekly Wrapup

Glen Weaver Profile: The Weave

I just finished taking the SaaS quiz we put up on the site yesterday. I got eight of 10 questions right, which is pretty poor considering I wrote most of the stories the quiz is based on.

Can I fail at my own game?

Besides the quiz we ran a few stories on the site this week. One found Gartner basically saying “Cut it with the bellyaching. You really do have to take Vista.” I got a few emails after that one. People just can’t love that thing.

The other one had to do with finding a new spot to store your servers. There is no shortage of companies willing to lease you or sell you data center space. Our expert tells us to pay attention to the long-term tax deal and utility rates.

My editor, Kate Evans-Correia, often writes about Facebook. But this week she turned in a column about working during vacation. Know what else I guarantee you she did during vacation? I’ll give you a hint. It’s got a nice blue-and-white color scheme and Mark Zuckerberg invented it.

Honestly, though, all that work was nothing compared with sweating out the Manny Ramirez trade rumors.

Alright, weekend time. I’m catching Old 97’s at some roadhouse on Cape Cod right on the beach. May all of your weekends rock just as hard.
