Our CTO is Blogging

Bill, our chief technology officer, just launched his blog. Bill is the mastermind behind our email hosting system, specifically the infrastructure (hardware, servers, etc.). I asked Bill to start blogging because he’s one of the smartest dudes I’ve ever known and I think there is a lot of value in getting his thoughts online. Likewise, a lot of what he does these days has a direct impact on our email hosting system and thus, our customers.
If you’re interested in tracking his thoughts as well as the progress we make with our email hosting system, go here and read or subscribe to Bill’s blog. I’ll also be linking to a lot of his posts from this blog—I’m going to do my best to take his technical thinking and paraphrasing things in a way non-techies like me can understand.
