One Year at AWS!

Phew….

The fire hydrant of knowledge has been affixed firmly to my head for a long time now. Though the flow of information on products and services from high to low and left to right has not slowed down. In fact it has sped up! The innovation by everyone, everday, is incredible.

In a tornado of awesomeness for sure!

Still Alive

I really should blog more.  But Twitter and LinkedIn make it so much easier than blogging.  Then again I do need to rekindle my love of tech. And doing consulting in Australia is a lot more boring than a Startup in China.  On the other hand, my diet, exercise and stress levels are much better.

It’s been a while – SKAFFOLD Launches

It’s been a long while between posts.

In the interim the following has happened:

– Gone through a public company’s voluntary administration and subsequent exit

– Bought a house

www.skaffold.com went live!  Check it out.

The McDonalds of IDC’s?

I mean that in a good way.  I can see why they offer such a compelling IDC choice for many companies.  From being carrier neutral, easy cross connects, standardised security and operational procedures – heck even the free wifi is based on the same docket printing and login system.

China .CN TLD Registration Rules Change Again #complete_shock

Who didn’t see this one coming?

Maybe a few “China Consultants” who are out busy trying to sell their expertise (cough) on Guanxi and gan bei?  But the rest of you I am sure will be dragging out the #conplete_shock hash tag right about now, right?

In any case, it is now not the case that a business can register a domain name.  Get this.  Businesses are NOT ALLOWED to own .CN domain names.  ONLY INDIVIDUALS.  I’ll let you all ponder why that may be the case.  It is about as hard as figuring out why BBQ’s attract flies.

Guanxi #fake_china_consultant

I won’t write too much on this.  Did so already on LinkedIn and then David Wolf did it over on Silicon Hutong.

You people out there know who you are.  Stop trying to take the short cuts and giving us genuine China hands a bad reputation.
