Gigaom broke the story on Qubole late yesterday.

I haven’t blogged for a couple of years now. It seemed little fun to rage against stuff – or to put expression to ideas that didn’t seem to have a chance to materialize. Ideas need a successful business plan to make a positive difference.


Or like Zuck said: “we don’t build services to make money; we make money to build better services


So we started this journey – to build a company that would build great data products, serve it’s customers  famously – and then build even better products out of that fuel.


I am, unfortunately, also old enough to not feel like beating my head against a wall. But these are exciting times – the cloud is the PC of the 80s. Like crap today – but with obvious potential. Surfers ride waves. Software guys ride technology trends. Lucky to get a chance to ride this one.


So hopefully – the next couple of years will not be like the last two. There will be a lot to discuss while we build some cool stuff. Most of my personal technical work – direct or indirect – will show up at the Qubole Blog . We are also pimping ourselves at all the social media pitstops du jour (Linkedin, Facebook or Twitter) – follow along for the ride – it will be fun. I guarantee it.
