Your Reader Support Is Appreciated

Today is my birthday and I'm celebrating in the best way possible:  talking with you and meeting a vendor, Crossbeam Systems, at their headquarters.

I'm not kidding about the talking to you part. I vastly prefer to base my articles on what real-world IT folks have to say. And you all have been huge in helping me. I'd say I've done a couple dozen major feature stories based entirely on your input. And some of you have been involved in most of them, readers like Marc W., JC, Mark P., Asif M. and many, many more.

These articles take a close look at key technologies and analyze them with a pure IT view. It beats the socks off a regular one-person review or trend story based on analysts who aren't currently in the trenches. I guess this readership is my birthday present.

Two pieces I'm working on are Google Apps vs. Office 365 and a piece on what drives you crazy. Help with either welcome at [email protected].

This January 5, I'll celebrate the seventh year of writing this newsletter. How long have you been reading? Am I getting stale or deserve another term? Give it to me straight at [email protected].
