This is a general collection of public thoughts, stories and things I've seen. I'm making an effort to keep it up to date..roughly. Opinions are my own.

2012

Looking back on 2011, it’s been a crazy crazy year.

To recap

Jan - Left LBG, moved house.
Feb - Started Rumble, began work at ANZ, met awesome people.
March - Got an accountant, setup company structures. Begin SaaS products journey.
April - closed out IKIMODO, I’ll tell you about this one day soon. GK came onboard with Rumble
May - Client 2
June - JS came onboard to Rumble, client 3 on board. Tabby turned 1!
July - client 4
August - closed out major milestone at anz. met more awesome people.
September - clients 5 & 6.
October - Amazingly busy month, 5 prospects came up, didn’t close any. Trough of dissolutionment befalls me, I get promoted at ANZ.
November - I mysteriously became older, BR started to Rumble, asp, lv sat down with me and we submitted to Startmate, milestone for E*trade complete.
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)
GL (xero/Saasu)

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?

Boom

It's on
