Talking with Guy Kawasaki at SXSW

Lucky me. I got to sit down with marketing guru and popular author, Guy Kawasaki across from our ServerBeach booth just minutes ago at SXSW. A Tweet up was brought together at the Opera booth with Guy who fielded any questions. He’s really excited about his latest venture, Alltop. He’s launching a MyAlltop this upcoming week. Very cool guy and refreshingly down to earth. I’m a big fan of Guy. My company, PEER 1 is one of the sponsors of JFSA’s Innovators Lunch with Guy as the speaker in Vancouver on April 1st. This by chance meeting was a nice surprise.

Bye, Bye YouTube… Your Time is Up

Some of our staff members at ServerBeach got together to produce a hilarious farewell video to YouTube. YouTube started hosting their site at ServerBeach as a startup and continued on until their last server went offline here November 2007 and moved over to Google’s data centers as a result of being acquired. Check it out.
