December - accepted into startmate, Wolfy turns 3, looking for another house, more clients into Rumble, resign from ANZ, met more awesome people again
These are the headlines, there was a whole heap more detail but I can barely remember much of it as it was a crazy blur.
Looking through my notes
I ran up
19 crm’s, I settled on nimble in the end.
5 email services (zoho, gmail, exchange, live 365, rackspace mail) Gmail still rocks
2 talent management systems (settled on recruiterbox)
4 integration engines (settled on onesaas)
168 servers, (rackspace, ec2, rightscale, linode, cloud.com)
4 virtualization stacks (esx, xen, vbox, openstack)
SSO (ping, onelogin & LP)
Storage (box, Dropbox, jungle disk)
There are many more products that i ran for testing this year, that I can’t be bothered writing down, there was a lot!
Why do this you ask?
What else would I do, watch tv?
