Clouds over NYC

I would never expect New York to be the cloud computing hotspot but two hot startups in the cloud space are actually based in NYC: 10gen and Appnexus.

I’m in a New York state of mind

Some folks like to get away
Take a holiday from the neighborhood
Hop a flight to Miami Beach
Or to Hollywood
But I’m taking a Greyhound
On the Hudson River Line
I’m in a New York state of mind

I did not take the Greyhound and I am not here on a holiday but I am still in a New York state of mind…

On the Road Again

After a long wait I managed to get through the Heathrow Flight Disconnect and I landed safely in the US yesterday.

I plan to meet with the potential customers, VCs, analysts, advisers, partners and even some friends in Boston, New York and San Francisco. Overall almost forty meetings in one week. This trip reminds me the crazy travel schedule of Systinet days when I had to fly Prague – Tokyo – San Francisco – Los Angeles – Boston – London – Prague in one week (ever since I was a kid I knew from Jules Verne‘s book that this way around the globe I gain one working day).

I did not have to travel as much at HP but things are different here at GDC. And so I am on the road again…
