First off to the Zoho bash at B near Moscone…
I’ll tell you what – for a freemium office suite, they sure throw a party together. I had great conversations with Ross from Nine Summer (he refreshingly gets the enterprisey, as he was CTO at Timex for 3 years), the folks from Spresent, and Tim from PlanHQ. I still think Ross and Tim need to connect to talk about PlanHQ.
I then dropped by the House of Shields for RedMonk Evening Services, courtesy of Steve. This was a cool, small get together – focus on quality not quantity. I had some interesting conversations on the analyst biz with folks from Bite Communications.
It’s refreshing to get to finally meet some people that you have been reading and blogging about for awhile, and hang out in a casual setting… and also pick up a few more subscriptions to follow. Thanks Zoho and RedMonk!
