Our 15 Minutes of Fame (Well almost)

Filed in Cloud Industry Insights by Cameron Nouri | July 30, 2009 6:36 am

We don’t usually highlight when we get media coverage on our company through this blog, but we had to share this one.  It’s too good to pass up.  A few weeks ago on the evening of July 15, 2009 Rackspace Email[1] got its 15 minutes of fame.  Well actually it was more like half a second, but who’s really counting anyways?

That night if you were watching the Colbert Report[2] on Comedy Central you might have caught a quick glimpse of an email that the host, Stephen Colbert, was showing to the audience.  If you looked closely you would have seen that the email was actually being viewed in our Rackspace Email web-based client[3].  Check out the screenshot below.

Don’t believe it’s true?  You can check it out yourself on the Colbert Report‘s site[4].  Scan to about 1:54 seconds in the video and you’ll see.

Needless to say we are pretty proud of our few milli-seconds of fame.
